Stoke sell-out for Robins match

Stoke sell-out for Robins match

Stoke City are anticipating a sell-out home crowd for the biggest match ever at the Brit this Saturday against Bristol City

Despite Sky TV's presence and the 5.20pm kick-off, the Potters have only a few hundred tickets left in the home areas of the ground and are likely to open up half of the visitors' stand to accommodate as many Potters fans as possible.

The club had only released 2,500 tickets to Robins' fans in the South Stand, leaving another 2,500 extra tickets than can be sold to home supporters.

The battle of minds between the two clubs for this big, big match for both sides began earlier in the week with Tony Pulis urging all Potters fans to get on down to the Brit, rather than watch it on Sky. This was then reported on the Bristol City official website, but the emphasis changed to that Pulis was 'begging' fans to come down to the Brit. Whilst the Robins have been attempting to put the pressure on the Potters, there's no doubt that the pressure is all on them as the Potters enjoy a higher position, an additional point and home advantage.

Whilst we wouldn't expect the team to need any further motivation, there is no doubt that a full Brit is always a great occasion.

C'MON STOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
