Ticket Information: Stoke City

25 January 2019
The 103rd meeting between the sides sees both teams going into the game full of confidence, after impressive results last weekend – Stoke having beaten league leaders Leeds and PNE putting four past QPR away at Loftus Road.
 
Since the two sides played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in front of the Sky Sports cameras back in mid-August our hosts at the weekend have had a change of manager, with Nathan Jones now in charge of the Potters.
 
Alex Neil has a growing squad available to him. Joe Rafferty signed up to be the fifth addition of the January transfer window on Wednesday and with Louis Moult and skipper Tom Clarke set to be available as well, the manager’s options are certainly better than they were a month ago.
