Stoke City were the bookie's favourites at the beginning of the season to make an instant return to the Premier League but their season has pelted out. The Potters have been average this season with their inability to score a major problem for the team.
This was evident in their last fixture where the team played to a goalless draw at home to struggling Reading. Despite dominating the game Stoke City were unable to find the breakthrough in the match. Tom Ince was one of two players to hit the bar for the host after sending a shot onto the post in the first half.
