Bristol City aim to win just their second home game of the season against Stoke

Stoke travel to Bristol City on Wednesday night  for a game that’s being shown Live on Sky Sports.

The Potters have found of late, an ability to win games we just haven’t been at the races at. Saturdays 2-0 win over Peterborough was a casing point. I doubt very few would disagree Peterborough deserved something from the game, but they do say the sign of a side going in the right direction, is a team that can win regardless of performance. 

Stoke have a growing injury list with Powell (leg break) Souttar (ACL) & Bursik (thigh) all missing for the foreseeable. Josh Tymon limped off the Peterborough game with a hamstring pull, though scans show no significant damage, he will be assessed prior to kick off. Jordan Thompson is nursing a persistent knee injury and is likely to miss out. Clucas, Sima, Fox & Doughty are getting closer to fitness with the later 2 more likely to have a chance of making the squad.

How have we faired in previous meetings.

Saturday’s fixture will be the 59th meeting between the two sides

Stoke wins 26

Draws 15

Bristol City wins 17

The last meeting 

It’s only been 6 months since we last played Bristol City at Ashton Gate, Stoke ran out 2-0 winners with Powell & Fletcher scoring. Despite the scoreline the game was pretty tight with Stoke scoring their only shots on target.

Form (last 4 games)

Stoke

Stoke 3-3 Cardiff

Blackpool 0-1 Stoke

Luton 0-1 Stoke

Stoke 2-0 Peterborough 

Bristol City

Bristol City 2-1 Barnsley

Birmingham 3-0 Bristol City

Coventry 3-2 Bristol City

Bristol City are better travellers than playing at home, they have only won 1 league games at home this season compared too 4 away. 

Who’s the threat

Bristol City have Andreas Weimann who is a constant thorn in the Potters side plus Coldplay’s front man giving the singing a miss (thank god)

How could Stoke set up for the game.

Stoke will leave it late to pick the squad with a number of players 50/50 to start. Batth will once again lead the defence having been on the winning side in every game he’s played this season. 

What is your score Prediction?
