STOKE CITY HOST PRESTON ON WEDNESDAY
Stoke City host Preston North End in the Championship at the Bet365 Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Potters will be looking to climb further to safety having lost only once in their last five matches.
North End are also in a run of good form having not lost in five matches gaining three wins and two draws while City have won three of their last four matches on home turf.
Preston are currently sixth in the Championship table and are inside the play off zone on goal difference while City dropped down a place to 21st after Charlton beat promotion chasing Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the City Ground last night.
