Stoke City vs Peterborough United Prediction

Stoke City have promotion aspirations this season and their game against a struggling Peterborough side offers an excellent opportunity to keep momentum going.

The visitors are eerily close to the drop and have not made the requisite step up in performances since their promotion. Their poor form on the road has played a key role in their struggles and we are backing the home side to secure a comfortable win and a clean sheet.

Prediction: Stoke City 2-0 Peterborough United
