Stoke Defender Expects Tougher Task At St James' Park!
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."
