Tony Pulis wants to extend Roberto Mancini's frustrations at the Britannia Stadium when Stoke welcome Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
City manager Mancini has failed to win in five visits to Stoke since he took over at the club in 2009.
The Britannia is one of only five grounds on which the Italian has failed to taste victory during his time in charge and Pulis is rightfully proud of his record against the Premier League champions, however, he knows it counts for nothing come Saturday.
"That record of ours goes out of the window as soon as the game starts," he said. "We know we cannot live in the past and on what we have done before. You have to move on. So we will respect Manchester City like we always do. You have to respect a team of their quality."
Pulis had to contend with a sparse crowd in the previous round - a third-round replay win over Crystal Palace - and the Potters boss felt his players struggled without the vociferous backing of their fans.
He knows the sell-out crowd expected for the City clash, though, will play a vital part in his side's mission to progress to the fifth round.
"Our fans can play a huge part and I just hope they realise that. I am sure they do. They are magnificent," he said. "The players need to turn up and have a go, and the fans need to turn up and give it their best as well.
"Then you won't hear those four-and-a-half thousand Manchester City fans behind the goal. They will have one end of the ground, but our fans will have the rest and I want those lads and lasses on the terraces to clear their throats and give the best they can for their team to help us along."
