STOKE'S one of the toughest places to visit in the Premier League and tonight looks like being another miserable one in the EPL career of Roy Hodgson.
The former Liverpool boss started life at the Hawthorns with a home draw against Wolves but could suffer his first defeat tonight – and he won't be the first Baggies gaffer to experience that sinking feeling.
City have lost just one of the last 26 league meetings between the two sides since 1988 and are unbeaten in the last 17 at home since 1983.
Stoke are appealing at a best 19-20 with Chandler and I can see them also leading at half-time (11-5, Stan James).
Kenwyne Jones scored four goals in four games after his £8million signing from Sunderland but was dropped last week.
Tony Pulis could be tempted to bring him back and if he starts he's worth a look at 11-2 with Skybet.
However, if I had one first-scorer bet it would be be Stoke's John Carew, also
11-2 with Skybet.
West Brom's top scorer Peter Odemwingie is 15-2 with Skybet.
