Things are not looking good back at DW Stadium, the home team despite the support of the crowd have won only one of their last eleven home matches.
In their last league outing, they lost to Watford. It was Joao Pedro who found the back of the net in the 87th minute of the game.
Stoke are also facing a similar crisis as their counterparts. In their most recent game, they played against Norwich in a 3-1 defeat. Currently, they are at the nineteenth position on the table. Even the teams who are in the relegation zone have won at least one game in their last three matches.
