Betting Guide: Stoke v Fulham

Last updated : 04 January 2010 By Dan Buxton

Stoke go into this league clash on the back of a few disappointing results, and hoping to build on the weekend victory over York. Fulham are on a good overall run, but haven't won away in the league since they beat Birmingham on the opening day of the season.

The Potters are, unexpectedly, only joint favourites for the game and are available a massive 7/4 with VictorChandler. Fulham can also be backed at 7/4 with Skybet and Bet365.The draw is 12/5 with SkyBet.

Stoke will be hoping to grab a much needed league win and 1-0 is available at 7's with Coral, Ladbrokes, BlueSQ and Boylesports. The Potters biggest win this season was a 2-0 opening day win over Burnley, and BlueSQ offer 12's that the Potters repeat that. The Potters have been conceding goals quite often lately so a clean sheet may not be coming and BlueSQ offer 10/1 on a 2-1 Stoke win.

Fulham may have to defend and take their chances to snatch a 1-0 win. That scoreline is 7's with Coral, Ladbrokes, BlueSQ and Boylesports. Fulham are full of confidence and may attack the Potters, hoping to be more clinical than the hosts, and BlueSQ and BetFred offer 12's on a 2-1 away win. The Potters have been finding scoring hard and with a stubborn away defence a goalless draw may well be the result, Ladbrokes, Coral, StanJames and Boylesports offer 16's on that score.

City will be hoping that the positive performance against York can be repeated and both Ricardo Fuller, 13/2 with Coral and Boylesports to open the scoring, and Matthew Etherington, 16's with BlueSQ to net first, will be hoping to carry on their goalscoring form. Tuncay may benefit from a back on form Fuller alongside him and is 7's with Boylesport and BlueSQ to break the deadlock.

Bobby Zamora has been Fulham's main goal threat, netting 6 times in his last seven games, and is 13/2 with BetFred, BlueSQ and Bet365 to open the scoring whilst Andy Johnson always seems to net versus Stoke and is the same price with the same bookmakers and also StanJames.
