Stoke Form


Stoke have incredibly drawn six of their last eight matches in the Championship, with that run of form also seeing them sit 7th in the table.

Since their last win, the Potters have drawn four and lost one of their five matches. The run started with successive draws against Coventry and Nottingham Forest and a defeat to Bournemouth.

They then drew with Blackburn before playing out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Rotherham. Danny Batth and Nick Powell both got on the scoresheet as Stoke twice came from behind.

Stoke Team News & Injuries


Stoke are without James Chester, Morgan Fox, Tyrese Campbell, Niki Mäenpää and Lee Gregory.

Watford Form


Watford’s recent strong form has come at home, with each of their last three victories all coming at Vicarage Road.

The first of those wins came against high-flying Norwich, after which the Hornets were beaten 2-1 by Swansea. They then bounced back with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield back on home turf.

Last time out, Watford beat Barnsley 1-0 at home. Captain Troy Deeney scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot, with it being the striker’s 5th league goal of the season.
