Tyrese Campbell (Knee Injury) and Joe Allen (Hamstring Injury) aren’t available for Stoke gaffer Michael O'Neill.
Team News: Millwall
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the Millwall manager Gary Rowett to be concerned with. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) won’t be playing here.
We’re inclined to think that Millwall may well find it hard to score goals against this Stoke City side who will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
That’s why our selection here is for a hard-fought 1-0 winning score for Stoke City when all is said and done.
Hoping for a good game.
