Potters take on Bristol City...
STOKE CITY U23s return to action tomorrow afternoon as they host Bristol City at St. George’s Park in their fourth Premier League Cup group game (2.00pm).
The sides previously met up in the first round of matches, with the Potters slipping to a 3-1 defeat away to Luke Williams' side at the Woodspring Stadium.
Since then both clubs currently sit tied on six points at the top of Group G with Friday’s hosts leading the way on goal difference with seven goals scored their last two victories.
Following their 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic, the side backed it up with a 4-3 victory over Liverpool at the Deva Stadium the last time they appeared in the competition in December.
Friday's visitors meanwhile returned to winning ways in the Premier League Cup last time out with a narrow 1-0 win over Charlton Athletic, after a 7-0 reverse to Liverpool prior to that.
A win for Potters on Friday will put them in pole position to qualify for the knockout rounds of the competition with only two game weeks remaining.
Eighteen-year-old forward Tyrese Campbell will head into the game looking to get his name on the scoresheet for the fourth successive U23s game after previously netting against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Norwich City and the Reds.
One man who will miss out for the Potters tomorrow afternoon however is new signing Moussa Niakate who will serve the second match of a three game suspension for violent conduct against Norwich City two weeks ago.
Entry to the game at St. George's Park is free of charge, although please note capacity is strictly capped at 499 spectators. Stewards will be on site to assist with car parking arrangements.
