Stoked up for City clash

Stoke City

GLENN Whelan insists that his Stoke City side are ready for the challenge against his former club Manchester City tomorrow.

"Obviously they are champions and have some top-quality players, but playing at home against one of the big boys is what we all want to do," says Whelan.

"We always seem to do all right against them, and City's obviously where I first started out."
