Here are the possible sides for Stoke and Hull City this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 28th February 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Odds: Stoke 1/1, Draw 5/2, Hull City 18/5

Stoke City could move up a place in the table this weekend with a win against Hull, as Mark Hughes looks for his team to maintain their momentum.

Stoke played well against a determined Aston Villa outfit in their last game and are looking like a very difficult side to get a result against at the moment.

Stoke have the ability to switch up their play at any point in games and take advantage of the natural physical presence they have from key players in important positions around the pitch.

Hull City have managed to put a little bit of distance between themselves and the bottom three in the Premier League, which takes a bit of pressure away from Steve Bruce’s team.

They battled their way to a 2-1 win against QPR in their last outing and will be looking for an inspired performance to get the better of Stoke.

Hull can draw on their performances away from home against Arsenal and Manchester City this season, where they got draws, to give them a bit of inspiration heading into this game.
