Pascoe Wary Of Stoke City Threat

Swansea City assistant manager Colin Pascoe expects a tough game at Stoke City on Sunday, as they look to complete the double over the Potters.

Brendan Rodgers' side beat Stoke 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium, but it'll be even tougher against a team very strong on their own soil.

Pascoe said there's more to their game than just their long balls into the opposition's penalty box:

'I've been there a lot of times and they're formidable at home are Stoke,'

'They put balls in your box and make you defend and it will be hard.

'They say [their only weapon is] the long ball but a lot of people don't give Stoke credit.

'When they put the ball in the final third they've got players that can hurt you.

'They do play in the final third and that's the style of Stoke.

'They don't hide it, they know what they do, and we have to be up for it on Sunday.

'Stoke have got their style and we've got ours. Stoke must be doing something right because they've been in the Premier League, I think this is their fourth year.

'We get the ball down and pass the ball. There's all different styles in all different leagues and we've got to cope with it.'
