Stoke City v Wigan: Potters target first league win of 2013


Bookmark and Share

Wigan are one of the few clubs who are undaunted about playing at the Britannia. Most teams baulk at the thought of playing in front of 20,000 passionate Potters, but not Wigan. In their past four Premier League visits they have won one and drawn two. That is an impressive record. Their only loss came in Stoke's debut season in the Premier League in 2008/09. But can Roberto Martinez's men leave Staffordshire with a result tonight?

Stoke City are yet to record a league win in 2013. Despite a decent end to 2012, the new year has been a difficult one for Tony Pulis's side. Since drawing 3-3 with Southampton, the Potters have only managed five goals and three of them came in extra time against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup.

Chelsea are the only side to have triumphed at the Brit in the league this season, but Wigan have one of the best away records of those in the relegation fight, with three wins to their name. Can the Potters end the month with a win or will Wigan be toasting a huge victory come full time?

Stoke City v Wigan Athletic; Kick Off 7.45pm January 29 2013
