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

Last meeting between the sides

Stoke 0-0 Reading, in fact 3 of the last 5 games have ended in a draw if anyone wants to bet on that result. Stoke’s last loss to Reading was a 3-1 way result back in 2006

    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?
