Match preview

Stoke’s Championship playoff push has stalled after back-to-back defeats at home but the Potters can bounce back by beating struggling Hull.

Three of Stoke’s last four league wins have come on the road and they travel to Hull with a stronger squad because veteran striker Steven Fletcher and creative midfielder Mario Vrancic have returned to training.

Potters manager Michael O’Neill misses the game after testing positive for Covid, but he has a decent group to choose from and will be aiming for nothing less than three points.

Hull manager Grant McCann has a tougher selection to face after one of his first-team regulars, powerhouse striker Josh Magennis, sealed a move to League One top flight Wigan.

McCann’s injured side put on a decent show at home to Everton in the FA Cup third round, losing 3-2 after extra time, but they have gone four games without a league win and could struggle to stop the rot.

Key stat

Stoke have won three of their last four away matches.
