Keep the unbeaten run ticking over
Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup victory over Oxford United extended our unbeaten run to five games in all competitions to begin 2019. Thomas Frank’s switch to three at the back has seen us tighten up defensively but now the Head Coach wants to see more going forward, so expect plenty of attacking intent as we build into 2019.
Make it a difficult start for the new Stoke boss
After Gary Rowett’s sacking on Tuesday, The Potters appointed Nathan Jones as their new manager earlier this afternoon. With the away end sold out, the new Stoke boss will be hoping for a victory to start life in charge on the front foot. With your backing, Thomas and the boys will look to ensure Jones has to wait a bit longer to celebrate those first points.
Finish the job from August
We’ve already played Stoke City once this season, a 1-1 draw back in August. However, we deserved much more than that on the day with Ollie Watkins’ superb goal showing what this team is capable of! After falling just short of three points that day, the team will be striving to complete the job on Saturday.
We'll be gone for a while
Following Saturday’s game, we head into another tricky run of away fixtures, meaning we aren’t back at Griffin Park until early February. A victory against The Potters would set us up nicely for our league and cup trips to Rotherham United and Barnet as we look to make continued progress on two fronts.
