Despite collecting just four points from as many matches, Stoke have managed to retain their grip of a place in the playoffs after eight matches.
Michael O’Neill would have taken that scenario at the beginning of the season, but the Northern Irishman will now expect the Potters to kick on over the coming months.
Stoke have competition in all areas of the pitch, something which was proven on Tuesday evening as they recorded a 3-1 victory away at Watford in the EFL Cup third round.
Improvements need to be made in defence with five matches having passed by without a clean sheet, but the pending return of Tyrese Campbell will give this squad a considerable lift.
Stoke are one of five teams who still remain unbeaten at home in the Championship, their three victories all coming by a one-goal margin.
Joe Allen will be assessed as he continues to recover from a toe injury, but Tommy Smith serves the final game of his three-match ban.Tyler Smith is pushing for a chance in the Hull attack after providing the assist for Lewis-Potter’s goal last weekend.
