Stoke take on Luton, another chance for O’Neill to get one over the Chest beater
Luton Town visit the bet365 stadium having proved that Nathan Jones actually is a decent manager, just that the Stoke job was too big for him at this time in his managerial career.
Luton currently sit 8th in the Championship, four points ahead of Stoke.
Luton & Stoke both have eyes on the top six, with games running out losing to a team in and around us just makes it that much harder.
Stoke have dropped 4 points in the last two games, games we should on reflection have taken 6 points from, especially the Forest game.
How have we faired in previous meetings.
Wednesday’s fixture will be the 48th meeting between the two sides
Stoke wins 21
Luton wins 11

Who’s the threat
Ex Stoke player Cameron Jerome is in Luton’s side, whether he plays is a question as Adebayo & Cornick have been scoring. Sonny Bradley is a threat at set pieces and rated Luton’s top performer this season
How could Stoke set up for the game.
Tyrese Campbell with his two goals versus Birmingham has probably assured his place, Josh Maja is back after isolating due to Covid. Nick Powell failed a late fitness test for the last game but could feature against Wednesday. Ben Wilmot went off sick versus Birmingham, he’s since recovered and available but we have Smith to cover. Romain Sawyers is back fit and could feature
