Stoke City are hoping to claw their way towards the Championship play-offs as they take on fourth-placed Watford at the bet365 Stadium.
Stoke are currently eighth and six points behind Watford, with Michael O’Neill emphasising the need to start turning draws into wins if they are to be top six contenders.
James Chester returns from a one-match ban but Ryan Shawcross misses out having only just returned to training following a positive Covid case. New signing Alfie Doughty is expected to be out for another couple of months with a hamstring injury.
Watford are under new boss Xisco Munoz and arrive in the Potteries having won three of their last four league games – with all of those three coming without conceding a goal.
