How's your club doing?

Currently suffering a bad run of form and the manager still hasn't signed a new contract, which must be having an effect. The superb performance at Highbury two Sundays ago has now been forgotten after a poor performance at QPR and City really need to get back on track and the aim is now top 10, rather than play-offs.

Team News:

Greenacre is likely to be Akinbiyi's partner up front. In midfield Clarke still hasn't been suspended after a strange incident at Nottm Forest where he was sent off after the match, so he may play, John Eustace (badly missed!) is likely to partner Dave Brammer in the central midfield with either Russell or Carl Asaba playing left-mid. In defence we expect Wayne Thomas and Gerry Taggart to play centre-back positions - the strongest defence in the league - and John Halls is a doubt for right-back so, 21-year old Lewis Buxton may play his 7th game for the Potters since moving from Gillingham with Marcus Hall playing at left back. In goal will be Steve Simonsen.

Player to Watch:

John Eustace. Pure quality in midfield and has been badly missed over the last few months. He has been out with a groin tear but looks quality when he has been coming on as a substitute recently.

What do you think of Leeds United?

They seem to have their problems but have proven themselves a good outfit this year and it will be a tough game.

Score Prediction:

1-0 to Stoke - Back to winning ways.
