Writing on the wall for Stoke if they fail to deliver against Brum

STOKE City fans an anxious 90 minutes today (July 12) when their favourite team take on Birmingham City at the bet365 stadium.

It's a 'must-win' game for the Potters if they are to improve their chances of maintaining Championship status for another season.

The club currently sit just one place above the relegation zone after a catastrophic 5-0 hammering at league leaders Leeds United on Thursday.

Manager Michael O'Neill was furious at the attitude of his players who were sunk without trace after conceding a needless penalty bang on half-time.

Until them the Potters had remained in the game after producing a spirited defensive performance up against a rampant Leeds attack.

A furious O'Neill commented after the game: "We made five substitutions but if I had the chance to make 10, believe me, I would have done".

The results of yesterday's Championship fixtures went in Stoke's favour and they need to capitalise on their good fortune, particularly Hull City's 1-0 loss at home to Millwall.

A victory for Hull would have consigned the Potters to the bottom three.

With three tough games remaining after today, to get themselves out of trouble - Bristol City (a) , Brentford (h) and Notts Forest (a) - anything other than a victory against Birmingham could open the trapdoor to League One.

Today's game behind closed doors at the bet365 Stadium kicks off at 1.30pm.
