Time is running out for Stoke boss Mark Hughes

Mark Hughes is under pressure
1 of 1

Kick-off 3pm Saturday

Mark Hughes has been hanging on to the Stoke job by his fingertips but his grip could be loosened further by a defeat at home to West Brom.

Hughes could point to West Brom - with no wins in four under Alan Pardew - as an example of the risks of sacking an established manager.

But Albion's recent performances away to Liverpool (0-0) and at home to Manchester United (1-2) have been decent and they could just have the edge in a contest where home advantage may not count for much.
