Youngsters back in action this evening...
STOKE CITY U23s will be aiming to make it three wins on the bounce in all competitions this evening when they welcome Charlton Athletic to Harrison Park (7.00pm).
Kevin Russell’s side recorded an emphatic 6-2 victory over Sunderland in the Premier League Cup two weeks ago, before securing their place in the semi-finals of the Staffordshire Senior Cup last time out at the expense of Stone Old Alleynians.
The team’s success over Sunderland 14 days ago, coupled with results elsewhere in Group A, mean that another victory tonight would guarantee the Potters a place in the knockout stages of the competition, while a draw would leave qualification in their own hands heading into the final round of fixtures.
Entry to tonight's match is free to Season Card Holders of both Stoke City and Leek Town, while general admission is priced at £2.00 adults and £1.00 for all concessions. Turnstiles will open at 6.00pm.
