Improving Hull can hold shot-shy Stoke
There has been talk of Stoke being dragged into a relegation fight as the out-of-form Potters have slipped to eight points above the drop zone, but they are bigger than 100-1 for relegation and it would take an incredible set of results to take them down.
However, Stoke have lost four on the spin and could be in for a tricky 90 minutes against improving Hull.
The Tigers have tended to do all of their best work on their own patch, but since impressive coach Marco Silva arrived nearly all of their trips have been against top teams.
