This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Everton and Stoke City at 15:00 on Saturday, 14th March 2009 in the Premier League.
Stoke City travel to take on Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 36 out of 54 times.
The last time the two teams met at Everton was amazingly over twenty years ago, in November 1984, as they swept to an impressive 4 - 0 win in a First Division match.
