Official Boothen Roar Match Preview: Fulham v Stoke

Last updated : 21 January 2011 By Dan Buxton

The Potters travel to Fulham after just three defeats in thirteen games, and hoping to make it four league away wins this season.

Stoke sit 8th in the Premier League and will be up to try and inch further away from the relegation zone and hopefully into a european position. The hosts are seven places and seven points below City.

Stoke have a good away record this season and have already beaten Newcastle, Cardiff, West Brom and Blackburn on their travels. Fulham have only won three homes game this season, but have only lost three times at the Cottage aswell.

In the 34 matches between these sides at Stoke, the Potters have won 10, the hosts 17 and seven have been drawn. Last time the pair clashed at Craven Cottage the game ended in a 1-0 away win. Overall Fulham have won 28 times to the Potters 26 victories.

The referee is Stuart Attwell. This season he hasn't took charge of the Potters. He refereed Fulham in their 0-0 away draw at Bolton on the opening day of this season.

The Met Office report that there will be low level cloud, temperatures of a mildish 7 degrees celsius, moderate visibility and a 9mph wind.

Prediction: The Potters bring back the players rested for the cup win at Cardiff and manage a fourth away win of the season thanks to a goal in each half from Ricardo Fuller and debutant John Carew
