Scunthorpe defender Wiseman up for Diego Costa challenge

Scunthorpe United defender Scott Wiseman is ready for their FA Cup clash with Chelsea.

Wiseman is looking forward to his battle with Diego Costa.

He said: "Costa is a handful for any team but you know what to expect with him and what we are up against.

"Of all the players I have come up against, the best has been Robert Lewandowski. He was untouchable, and scored four on his own (when Poland beat Gibraltar 7-0 in September 2014).

"It really showed the difference between his standard and the level we were playing at.

"It's the way players like him think, and particularly the way they are structured. I like to think I'm a fit guy, and quick, but stood next to guys like him you feel next to nothing.

"These are pure athletes, proper men, and that's intimidating in itself when you don't come up against it every week."
