Stoke City vs. Preston North End

Britannia Stadium



Stoke Vital PNE preview

The Potters entertain PNE at the Brit this weekend as they attempt to break the visitors' 21 game unbeaten run. Stoke ran out 1-0 victors against Preston earlier in the season at Deepdale.

Vital Quotes:

Johan Boskamp is hopeful that things will pick up now after Stoke's good cup run: 'The big thing is maybe we have our confidence back now and now we can prove that against Preston on Saturday. We have a lot of games left and we can still take a lot of points. For that we hope the confidence is back after the FA Cup win and we need a win.'

Stoke City Team News:

Dave Brammer and Kevin Harper are still out injured. But Darel Russell is hoping for a place in the squad after starting training this week.
Sam Bangoura is still off in Egypt but could be back soon after Guinea were knocked by Senegal in the Quarter Finals.

Player to watch: Luke Chadwick

As long as he's fit, he's a threat.

Preston North End Team News:

Preston have no new injury worries and come to the Potteries full of confidence after a good unbeaten run.

Player to watch: Brett Ormerod

After signing from Southampton in the January transfer window, he scored in his debut earlier this week against Crystal Palace.
