West Brom boss Tony Mowbray admits the scud throw-ins of Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap are unstoppable.
â€śI donâ€™t think there is anything you can do to stop it,â€ť Mowbray told the Birmingham Mail. â€śYou canâ€™t stand on the touchline and jump up and down to stop him throwing it in â€“ I think it probably suits them better the further away from the corner flag it is.
â€śThat gives him a trajectory and an angle to throw it straight at goal knowing that any kind of touch could take it in.
â€śIt is very difficult to deal with. You have to want to make the first contact with the ball but they have half-a-dozen lads who are 6ft 4in-plus so it can be hard to do.
â€śThere is no clever tactic â€“ you bank men in front of the goalie and hope somebody heads the thing out.
â€śEverybody who has played them this year has had to deal with it and Iâ€™ll be no different.
â€śWe know what is coming, it is within the laws of the game and we will look forward to going there and giving them a good game.â€ť
