Stoke City Preview – Can Stoke avoid third defeat on trot?

After being handed recent back-to-back defeats to Middlesbrough and Wigan Athletic, Saturday’s hosts, Stoke City, have been plunged into the relegation zone ahead of this crucial relegation ‘six-pointer’ against Barnsley where Stoke will be desperate to avoid a third defeat on the trot.

Stoke had previously put together a promising five-match unbeaten run under manager, Michael O’Neill, which included vital wins against Cardiff City 2-0 and Hull City in a 5-1 rout, both of which came on home turf at their Britannia Stadium.

Although Stoke have suffered defeats at home to Preston North End and Middlesbrough in recent times, The Potters have more than compensated for these by winning four of their last six at home against Swansea City and Charlton Athletic as well as the aforementioned Cardiff and Hull victories, while an overall home record of 8-3-9 29/26 at least proves Stoke can carve out wins under O’Neill.

Barnsley Preview – Can Barnsley continue revival?

Saturday’s visitors, Barnsley, are just one league position and two points below Stoke City ahead of this extremely important clash at the Britannia Stadium but Barnsley will be in confident mood as The Tykes have taken seven points from their three matches since the Championship season resumed.

Recent wins against QPR 1-0 away and Tuesday night’s 2-0 home win over Blackburn Rovers along with a point gained in a 0-0 draw at home with Millwall have handed the South Yorkshire club a vital lifeline in their bid to avoid the drop back down to League One.

The visitors have also won three of their last four matches away from home having picked up earlier wins on the road at Fulham and Hull City, but their overall away record of 4-3-12 17/29 continues to be a concern.
