Stoke favourite Delap: You just cannot rattle Fuller

Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap says Ricardo Fuller has been usual self during the week.

For the 1-1 draw at Manchester City, Fuller kept up his record of ­scoring in every round of this ­season's FA Cup, despite a testing week.

He was arrested last weekend ­after a nightclub fracas, when a 21-year-old man brought charges but then dropped them.

Delap said: "He's not been down this week. The worst thing in the world could have happened to him on Monday and you wouldn't have known it.

"The best thing could have ­happened the same afternoon and you wouldn't know that, either.

"He is just so laid back. He is good for the dressing room and he doesn't cause us any problems."
