Last updated : 15 October 2011 By Dan Buxton

Stoke City will look to keep their positive start to the season going in Saturdays big game.

The hosts are favourites at 13/10 with Bet365 and VictorChandler, the draw is 23/10 with BetFred, SkyBet, Ladbrokes and totesport, whilst an away win is available at 11/4 with StanJames, BetFred and totesport.

Stoke will hope to repeat the performance against Besiktas last time out at the Brit, when City triumphed 2-1. A repeat of that scoreline is available at 35/4 with unibet. Quite a few of the Potters wins last season were by more than one goal. A 3-1 win, to complete a memorable victory, is available at 20/1 with SkyBet and Bet365.

Fulham will be hoping to get their first away league win of the season with a victory against City, and 1-0 would do the visitors just nicely. That score is available at 9/1 with 188Bet. Last season Fulham ended an eighteen month wait for an away win by defeating Stoke 2-0 at the Brit, and a repeat of that is available at 20's with StanJames.

Peter Crouch will be hoping to hit the net for the fourth game in the row at the Britannia and is 23/4 with UniBet to open the scoring whilst Jon Walters will hope to build on his winning goal against Liverpool in the Potters only other Saturday 3pm KO this season. The Irishman is 15/2 with UniBet to score first. Winger Jermaine Pennant started scoring towards the end of last season. The former Liverpool winger can be backed at 20's, with WilliamHill, VictorChandler, 188Bet and SkyBet to break the deadlock.

Andrew Johnson is in great form this campaign, including a hat trick last time out, and is 9/1 with UniBet to keep that form going and open the scoring. Strike partner Bobby Zamora has been recalled to the England squad and is also 9/1 with UniBet to open the scoring.
