Stoke City welcome promotion-chasing Bournemouth to the freezing Potteries this evening in hope that they will end the evening level on points.
Stoke are eighth in the Championship following Middlesbrough’s win at Wycombe this afternoon – but can climb into the play-off zone with the right result against fifth-placed Bournemouth.
They have made a habit of being tough to beat under Michael O’Neill but Bournemouth’s Asmir Begovic had kept five clean sheets in a row before a mid-week defeat at Brentford.
It is a game which brings up the half-way point of the season and will be a good test of Stoke’s own credentials at the top end of the division.
