Championship

Rowett must start Berahino and Bojan against Birmingham City

Rowett must start Berahino and Bojan against Birmingham City

Stoke City have found their feet in recent times after a rather nervy start to the life in the Championship, as they continue to chase promotion straight back to the Premier League. 

The Potters will be desperate to pick up where they left off prior to the international break, with two consecutive Championship victories under their belt.

Interestingly, Stoke City will welcome Birmingham City to the bet365 Stadium in their next Championship encounter. Gary Monk’s side are enjoying a rich vein of form having gone unbeaten in their last eight Championship fixtures, so it won’t be easy for the Potters later on today.

So, Gary Rowett must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Stoke City stars…

Saido Berahino

Saido Berahino has been one of the standout performers for the Potters this season after going missing in seasons gone by, with three goals and one assist to his name.

The forward will be vital to the club’s promotion push this season and has the ability to unlock what has been a rather sturdy Birmingham City defence in recent times, so it’s vital that he gets a starting place later on today.

Bojan Krkic

Bojan Krkic has emerged from the darkness to become one of the shining lights for Stoke City this season, despite only scoring one goal so far.

Indeed, the Spaniard has the ability to open any defence with his incredible eye for a pass and dribbling ability, which could prove vital when it comes to getting Benik Afobe through on goal later on today.
