Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters extend unbeaten league run to six?

Stoke City have had a steady season under Michael O’Neill. After a couple of poor campaigns in the Championship, can City finally make a push for the top six? After 22 games played, the Potters sit seventh, two points adrift of the play-offs.

Stoke have been hard to beat in recent weeks. Apart from a Carabao Cup defeat to Premier League Tottenham Hotspur, City have not lost in the league for almost a month. Since a 2-1 home reverse to Cardiff City on December 8th, O’Neill’s boys are unbeaten in five in the Championship, though four of those have been draws.

(odds taken 2010 GMT, Friday 1 January)

After draws with Coventry City and Nottingham Forest, Stoke will be looking for all three points from this one. At the time of writing, the bookies have the home win priced at 5/2.

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries’ winless run to continue?

Bournemouth are searching for an instant return to the Premier League after dropping out of the top flight last term. The Cherries have been good so far, winning ten of their opening 21 matches. Bournemouth have amassed an impressive 38 points.

Despite a good first half to the season, Bournemouth head to the bet365 Stadium without a win in two. After a 0-0 draw with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, Tindall’s men let a lead slip to lose 2-1 to promotion rivals Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium on Wednesday.
