Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is under no illusions regarding the challenge the club faces this week.

The Potters host Spanish outfit Valencia in the Europa League Round of 32 first leg tomorrow night and the former Tottenham and Liverpool ace is well aware of the difficulty of the task.

"It's going to be incredibly tough, we know that but Valencia don't hold any fears for us," he told the club's official website.

"We have already met some top European sides at the Britannia Stadium and done well in all of them, beating Tottenham and Liverpool, while also giving a good account of ourselves in draws with Chelsea and Manchester United.

"On top of that, we have also performed well in our European games so far when we've met some top opposition in Hajduk Split, Besiktas and Dynamo Kiev.

"Everyone knows what to expect from Valencia; they are a top team with world-class players.”
