Stoke City vs Bournemouth

, KO: 19:45 Oct 19, 2021, bet365 Stadium
Bournemouth

Bournemouth will be looking to strengthen their grip on top spot as they travel to the bet365 Stadium for a midweek English Championship fixture against Stoke City. The hosts are likely to make things difficult but Bournemouth, but the visitors should have the edge.

Stoke City suffered a 2-1 defeat at Sheffield United in their previous Championship fixture. Despite taking a second half lead through Jacob Brown, they capitulated late in the game and conceded twice the final 10 minutes.

Despite the defeat, manager Michael O’Neill will be pleased with Stoke City's showing this season. They are in the mix for a playoff finish and are just four points behind West Brom in second place.

Stoke City have generally made a good start to the season but have looked slightly off colour in recent weeks, failing to win in two of their last three matches. They have also looked a bit shaky at the back, conceding in seven of their last nine matches.

Bournemouth climbed to the top of the Championship after a 2-0 victory away at Bristol City in their previous fixture. Jamal Lowe and Jordan Zemura got the goals before the break and were able to hold on for the win.

The Cherries have been the standout team in the Championship this season and the only side yet to taste defeat. Scott Parker’s men are three points clear at the top of the standings and head into Tuesday’s clash with six wins from their last seven Championship matches.

Led by Dominic Solanke who has seven goals this season, Bournemouth have impressed going forward. They are among the leading scorers in the Championship and have found the net in six of their last seven matches.
