Stoke City vs. Millwall

Britannia Stadium

25th February 2006


Stoke face the Lions

Stoke face the Lions this weekend and are desperate to notch up their first victory in 2006 against a Millwall side helping Crewe and Brighton prop up the foot of the Championship

Vital Quotes:

'We are in the mire, but we certainly aren't throwing the towel in, not at this club'.

Let's hope they sink a bit deeper tomorrow.

Stoke City Team News:

Sam Bangoura looks set to miss the game as he recovers from an operation on his broken hand last Thursday, but Paul Gallagher looks set to replace him in his first game since January. It is expected that he will partner Mamade Sidibe up front while Johan Boskamp has a selection dilemma in midfield with Darel Russell available after his three match suspension and Junior having impressed in Sunday's FA Cup tie with Birmingham.

Player to watch: Peter Sweeney

The winger is keen to impress against his old club. So much so that the Manager has warned him not to try to do too much. He told him 'your name is Sweeney, not Ronaldinho', reports The Sentinel.

Millwall Team News:

It is looking likely that former Potter, Carl Asaba, is set to return from a two month absence through injury to play against his old club.
Defender Paul Robinson is also due to play after being suspended. But midfield player, Jody Morris, is still out with a fractured cheekbone, winger Josh Simpson and striker Barry Hayles are also left behind with knee injuries.

Player to watch: Ben May

Millwall's top goalscorer. If we can keep him under control we should be ok.

Match Facts & Stats

Stoke won the game earlier in the season 1-0 at the New Den with a goal from John Halls.
Stoke have won the last three games, with them all ending 1-0

Match Prediction:

I'd be very happy with another 1-0 win.
