Sheff United vs. Stoke City

Bramall Lane

4th Dec 2007

Sheff U vs Stoke preview

In a quirk of the fixture computer, Stoke take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane less than a month after the Potters' 1-0 home defeat against the Blades. They'll be keen to make amends for the defeat despite dominating for long periods of the match.

Vital Quotes:

Sheff United Team News:

Matt Kilgallon and Nick Montgomery are doubtful and former Stoke player, Lee Hendrie has a chance of starting against his old club after injury has forced him to miss many games this season.

Player to watch: Lee Hendrie

The travelling Stoke fans will be keep to renew their acquaintance with Hendrie, should he start, after he turned down the opportunity of signing permanently for the Potters during the summer.

Stoke City Team News:

Stephen Wright is a doubt after he was pulled off early on in Saturday's win over Norwich with a groin injury. Andy Wilkinson should replace him, but other than that the same team should feature.

Player to watch: Ricardo Fuller

Ric is desperate to end his recent goalless run, despite several near misses in recent games and the team has had to be reliant on the goal scoring skills of Cresswell, Lawrence and Cort.
