Highest ever crowd to attend bet365 Stadium this weekend...
HISTORY WILL be made tomorrow when the bet365 Stadium welcomes a crowd in excess of 30,000 for the first time.
Paul Lambert has labelled the Premier League showdown with Everton a ‘must win’ for his Stoke City side and they certainly won’t be short on support as they go in search of a victory that could see them move out of the bottom three.
The Club have pulled out all the stops to ensure the attendance record is broken – for the fifth time this season!
Lambert, who takes charge of his eighth game as Potters boss tomorrow, admits he has been bowled over by the backing he has received since checking in at the bet365 Stadium and is looking forward to taking centre stage in front of a full house tomorrow.
“The prospect of having such a big crowd behind us is really exciting,” he told us.
“The fans have been incredible since I walked through the door, both home and away, I can’t thank them enough for that.
“They were brilliant when we played Manchester City on Monday; I thought the reaction after the game in particular was exceptional.
“They understood what the lads put in. You have to put into context who we were up against; they are so many points ahead at the top it is frightening. This is a Manchester City side who are playing an incredible style of football and our fans appreciated the efforts the lads put in.
“We have to be on the front foot this weekend though. There is no room for fatigue, we have to be ready and get at Everton from the off."
