This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Burnley and Stoke City at 19:45 on Tuesday 23rd January 2007 in the Championship.
Stoke City face a trip to Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 50 games played, Potters have recorded 15 wins, and Burnley have come away with 25 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2005, the Clarets carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Championship match.
