The game between Stoke City and Preston North End in the Championship on Saturday 30th September 2006 at 15:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Stoke City prepare to entertain Preston North End at Britannia Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Potters are clearly on top, having won 25 and lost only 11 of the 48 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Britannia Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2006, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides
Stoke City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 in the wrong end.
Preston N.E.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The North End's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.
Stoke City are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 8 points from their 9 games thus far. Preston N.E. are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 16 points from 9 games.
