Match Preview: Stoke Versus Reading
This game became more interesting since Mark Bowen sacked the manager then employed himself in the role, on the Sh*thouse scale that’s right near the top.
Believe it or not, Stoke have only ever played Reading 50 times before, which came as a surprise to me.
Stoke wins 18
Reading wins 17

Players to watch
Charlie Adam if he plays would love to get one over the club that let him leave, a shot from his own half is a certainty if he plays.
John Swift is having another good season, he has 6 assists to his name so far and according to Opta he is one of the top rated midfielders in the league.
Reading start the game 5 points & 4 places above the Potters, so another win like that against Luton would be welcomed to bring another side within touching distance.
Mark Bowen has a lot to answer for, backing Mark Hughes even though he downed tools & bringing Kevin Wimmer to Stoke. Let’s hope Stoke give him the result he deserves for that.
Can Stoke make it 4 wins in 7 games under Michael O’Neill?
