Last updated : 09 March 2010

Stoke go into this league clash on the back of two defeats but a fantastic run prior to that, and sit 11th in the league. Burnley have faltered after a flying start and have only one win since October.

Burnley are narrow favourites for the game and are available at 13/8 with BetFred. Stoke can be backed at 15/8 with Bet365.The draw is 12/5 with SkyBet.

Stoke may have to sneak a win in this tense clash and 1-0 is available at 15/2 with BlueSQ. The Potters biggest win this season was a 3-0 win over Blackburn, and BlueSQ offer 40/1 that the Potters repeat that. The Potters have conceded two goals quite often lately so a third may be needed and SkyBet offer 40/1 on a 3-2 Stoke win.

Burnley may have to put aside recent form and the pressure of being in the drop zone and grind out a 1-0 win. That scoreline is 7/1 with Ladbrokes, BlueSQ, Boylesport and Coral. Burnley look to attack and if leading late on could double the advantage. It is 12/1 with SkyBet the Clarets win 2-0. Four of Burnleys last seven home games have ended 1-1 and BlueSQ offer 6's on a repeat of that score. 

David Kitson has made a positive impression since his return to the side and could get a rare start on Wednesday. The hitman is 11/1 with Bet365 to open the scoring.
Ricardo Fuller will be hoping to follow up his recent good form and double his own league goal total and he can be backed at 13/2 with Bet365, BlueSQ and BetFred to net first. Matthew Etherington is in fine form, netting four times this season, and can be backed at 16's at Bet365 on his return to the side. Robert Huth is now donning the armband for the Potters and he is 25's with BlueSQ, Coral and Ladbrokes to net first on Wednesday. 

David Nugent has been Burnley's main goal threat lately and is 7 with Ladbrokes, SkyBet and StanJames to open the scoring whilst Robbie Blake has scored important goals this season and can be backed at 10's at Ladbrokes, Bet365 and Coral. Graham Alexander takes the penalties and this makes his 14/1 odd's, available across the board seem very good value indeed.
