English Premier League | 23 November 2013 | Britannia Stadium | 17:00

To Win (90mins)
Stoke 1/1 
Draw 24/10 
Sunderland 28/10

I had Sunderland to thank for pulling me from the mire as they chalked up their customary 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

The Black Cats have shown a tenacity that has bordered on assault in recent games, but it had been lacking under Di Canio.

Poyet has overseen two victories and two defeats in what has been a topsy-turvy start to his reign.

A visit to Stoke this weekend should provide a stern test to see how far they’ve come in such a short time.

While the Britannia is hardly the fortress it was under Tony Pulis, Stoke have only lost once there this season.

Betting Prediction: DRAW 24/10
Without a win since August it’s tough to tip Hughes side, so I’m playing it safe and going for yet another draw.
