Peter Crouch knows we cannot get complacent going into Saturday’s trip to Birmingham City.
On the back of four straight wins, including that famous treble of Arsenal away, Werder Bremen in the Champions League and Liverpool in the last minute, expectations will be high ahead of the visit to St Andrews.
But the striker knows this clash with the Blues, who have lost just once at home since September 2009, will be a different sort of challenge altogether and one we must be equally - if not more - prepared for.
‘Crouchy’ said: “Make no bones about it, this is going to be a really difficult game. We’ve got to make sure we’re up for it – maybe more so than the last three games.
“Arsenal is a local derby and a massive game, Liverpool are fighting for fourth spot and matches in the Champions League are all easy games to get up for.
“But Birmingham away will be a different kind of test and one that’s going to be extremely difficult, so we have to make sure we got there with the right mentality and get a result.
“They’ve got a good record at home, that’s something we’ll be aware of and, if it’s not snowing, hopefully it will be a good occasion!”
