Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters build on QPR success?

Stoke City have had a topsy-turvy season so far. At times, they look capable of beating anyone, but the Potters have already suffered seven defeats. They have won ten and drawn four of the other 14.

Stoke moved back into the play-offs with an excellent win at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday afternoon. City were worthy winners in west London, with Tyrese Campbell and Mario Vrancic getting the goals. That was just what the doctor ordered after back-to-back defeats.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 1446 GMT, Friday 10 December)

Stoke have lost six of their past 11 in all competitions, but last weekend’s win at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium was certainly a step in the right direction. Can Michael O’Neill’s boys follow that up with a home victory this Saturday?

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Wilder’s men make it three wins on the spin?

Chris Wilder got off to a slow start at Middlesbrough after taking over from Neil Warnock. Boro were held to a 1-1 home draw by Millwall in his opening game. They then let a lead slip to lose 2-1 to Preston North End at the Riverside Stadium.

However, Middlesbrough head to the bet365 Stadium having won two on the spin. After a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium, the North Yorkshire side picked up their first home win since October with a 1-0 success over Swansea City last time out.

Stoke and Middlesbrough seem pretty evenly matched on paper. We are expecting the pair to be there or thereabouts in the play-off picture come the end of the season, and our money is going on the draw in this one. Check out the draw and under 2.5 goals at 13/5.

Duncan Watmore was the hero in Middlesbrough’s last away game, scoring twice in the 2-1 victory at Huddersfield. Watmore is an integral part of the team, and the former Sunderland man is priced at 7/2 to score anytime in this one.
