            Stoke vs Plymouth Prediction, Tips & Stats

            The Bet365 Stadium is set to be the venue for a pivotal encounter in the Championship relegation battle, as Stoke City prepare to face Plymouth Argyle on Saturday afternoon. Both teams are in dire need of crucial points to secure distance from the relegation zone.

            The hosts currently find themselves in 20th position in the Championship table and they are just three points above the relegation zone. The Potters come into this weekend on the back of a disappointing run of results which has seen them go winless in their last four games.

            Last time out, Stoke only managed to take a point away from a vital game against fellow relegation rivals Sheffield Wednesday. A 76th minute Luke Cundle strike ensured that the Potters would take a point away from the game.
            Failure to win this weekend would leave Stoke in a very precarious position heading into the final two match-weeks of the season.

            Following a good run of results, Plymouth currently find themselves in 18th position in the table, with a four point buffer between themselves and the relegation zone. The Pilgrims have gained 48 points from their 43 league matches this season.

            Despite not having a permanent manager, Plymouth have recorded some excellent results in recent weeks, having gone unbeaten in their last three league games. The Pilgrims followed up a victory over Rotherham with a draw against QPR and an unexpected victory over Leicester City last weekend.

            Plymouth dealt the Championship leaders a hammer blow as they recorded a 1-0 victory at Home Park. The only goal in the game came in the 20th minute thanks to Mustapha Bundu as the Plymouth defence held strong despite being outplayed for the majority of the game.

            The fixture of Stoke vs Plymouth has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met in 1930. In total, the two sides have met each other on 42 occasions, with Stoke City having the better head to head record, having won 19 of the meetings.

            Stoke have dominated the recent history of this fixture and they have only lost on one occasion in the last six meetings of the two clubs. However it was Plymouth who recorded a narrow victory when these two sides met each other earlier on in the season.

            Plymouth's homegrown midfielder Adam Randell scored a last-minute winner as Argyle came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory over Stoke at Home Park. Randell hammered the ball home after a goalmouth scramble in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

            It is the home side who come into this match as odds on favourites and they are currently priced @ ⅘, whilst an away win for Plymouth is priced @ 10/3 and a draw is @ 11/4.

            We are backing both teams to score and Plymouth to win because they come into this game with the better form. We expect both teams to score because this has happened in all of the last five meetings between the two sides. Three out of Stoke’s last four games have also resulted in both teams having scored.

            Stoke will be without Ryan Mmaee, Lynden Gooch and Ben Pearson, who have all suffered hamstring injuries, while Sead Haksabanovic will face a late fitness test after he was withdrawn at half-time at the weekend due to a groin injury. Wouter Burger will have to pass a concussion test if he is to feature here.

            Plymouth Team News

            Plymouth have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s matchup. Neil Dewsnip is not likely to make any changes to the side that beat Leicester last time out, with Ryan Hardie set to lead the attacking line once again.
