Stoke face a tough challenge in the third round of the Carling Cup as Harry Redknapp’s Spurs make the trip to the Brit.

Both clubs had been given a bye through to the 3rd round due to our Europa League exploits but now it’s back to the first domestic cup competition of the season.

With Wilson Palacios and Peter Crouch both strongly rumoured to be edging closer to become Stoke’s latest signings before next Wednesday’s deadline, they may find that one of their first matches is against their old club. Nevertheless it’s still going to be a tough match but at least it’s at the Brit where we know we’re at our strongest.

It’s not been announced yet when the match will be played but it will take place during the week commencing September 19th.
