Stoke City Prediction – Can Stoke City find a way back?

A second defeat on the trot away from home against Millwall was the straw that finally broke the proverbial camel’s back as Stoke City parted ways with former under-fire manager, Nathan Jones, in what had been a turbulent and significantly disappointing tenure at The Potters.

Jones managed to oversee just 6 wins out of his 38 matches in charge of Stoke and he can’t complain about the highly unusual patience shown by the Stoke board but Monday night’s hosts now sit bottom of the Championship and 6 points adrift of Luton Town and safety.

Stoke did register rare back-to-back wins recently against Swansea City and Fulham but this proved to be a brief stay of execution for Jones and Stoke as The Potters reverted to type with back-to-back away defeats at Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall.

Former Stoke player, Rory Delap, has taken over the reigns as caretaker-manager as Stoke seek a full-time replacement but confidence must be at an all-time low as Stoke have won just 2 of their 14 matches to date in the Championship.

West Brom Prediction – Can West Brom return to the top?

All three points at Stoke City on Monday night at the bet365 Stadium would see West Brom return to the top of the Championship with manager Slaven Bilic’s team talk being a simple one – go out and just win.

West Brom bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this clash which includes wins against Cardiff City and Middlesbrough along with points picked up in draws with Barnsley and Charlton Athletic, which would have been slightly disappointing results for the west midlands club as they were both at The Hawthorns.

An impressive away record to date in the second tier of 4-2-1 9/5 places West Brom in a favourable position on Monday night, despite the recent defeat at Leeds United, but wins at Nottingham Forest, Luton Town, QPR and Middlesbrough should give them enough momentum for the points here.

A note of caution though as Stoke are now in transition and this usually has a fairly positive reaction from the players as they effectively play for their places again, but West Brom should at least avoid defeat here.


Key-Facts – Stoke City vs West Brom

  • Stoke have won just 2 of their 14 matches in the Championship to date
  • West Brom bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this clash against Stoke
  • West Brom have lost just 1 of their last 7 away matches in the Championship


Betting Tips Verdict

Stoke will be making a fresh start but it’ll take time for this to take effect while West Brom should at the very least avoid defeat but look good for the points in this one.
