The Potters were able to secure a precious 1-1 draw when the travelled to Kiev earlier this season, and Pulis believes the return tie is a huge one for both teams this time round.
“We’re going to have to be patient, both the players and supporters,” he told stokecityfc.com. “Kiev have players who are technically very gifted; they have the ability to keep the ball for long periods. So they will have long spells in the game when they are in possession.
“This will be as tough, if not tougher than Besiktas, and that one was tough. It’s a massive, massive game for us and we have to approach it in the right manner.
He added: “We’re hoping that there will be a full house roaring us on and we’ll need the backing of our supporters more than ever to help us get over the line.
“In many ways, this is a cup final for both sides. We need a point to qualify and they will be desperate to get a result to keep their hopes alive.
“We want to get the job done in this match. The results we have had in this competition so far have put us in a strong position to qualify and we will do everything we possibly can to win the game if we can, but we know there is a big job in front of us.”
Defender Andy Wilkinson is Pulis’ only concern for the tie despite passing a fitness test to face Blackburn last week, with the defender struggling to make it in time for two games in five days.
Asimir Begovic will step between the posts in place of Thomas Sorensen, while former England centre-back Matthew Upson is in line for a call up.
