7.45pm

Stoke visit Wolverhampton in the rearranged Staffordshire derby tonight in another attempt to reverse their current poor away form. This will prove a stiff task after being soundly beaten by Wolves 3-1 earlier in the season at the Brit and who are currently in 8th position in the Championship.

Vital Quotes:

Steve Simonsen told the official site that he reckons Wolves were one of the best sides to visit the Brit this season: 'They played really well on the day and in all fairness totally outplayed us.'

Wolves Team News:

Gabor Gyepes returns to the side after a month out with a back injury as Jody Craddock returns to the squad after a knee injury

Player to watch: Carl Cort

Currently Wolves' top scorer with 10 goals

Stoke City Team News:

Carl Hoefkens and Dave Brammer should return after suspension.
Striker Mamady Sidibe will play following nose surgery but Hannes Sigurdsson is a doubt with a hernia injury.

Player to watch: Sam Bangoura

On his previous form, he is well overdue for a return to goal scoring ways and what a time it would be for him to hit the back of the net!

Match Facts & Stats

You have to go back to February 1997 to find the last time that we came away from Molineux without at least a point.
