Martin Skrtel hopeful Liverpool can deal with Rory Delap's throw-ins for Stoke City

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel insists that his side will not have a problem in dealing with Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap's long throws.

The Slovakia international says that the defence, coupled with a little help from goalkeeper Pepe Reina, can thwart any long throw from resulting in a goal.

"We must try to be in the right place at the right time," Skrtel told the club's official website.

"It's not easy defending a long throw, so we have to be careful and work together with Pepe.

"We'll be very close to our goal, so we have to stay close to their players and try to clear space for Pepe to get it. Then he has to try to catch the ball."

The story is too old to be commented.
