Stoke Defender Expects Tougher Task At St James' Park!

The former Newcastle defender believes his Stoke side had better think first about Newcastle rather than a fourth round tie with Arsenal.
Griffin cannot feature against his old club as he was not registered to play in the first match ahead of his move from Derby.

Griffin: "I would have loved to be involved against a former club, but sadly that won't be the case.

"They're a good team and I think it will be a sterner test for the lads when we go up to Newcastle.

"It'll be a harder game than when it was here, no question about it, but we've got nothing to fear.

"The lads will definitely show them some respect because they are a massive club, but we don't fear anyone."
