Before the start of the season, Blackpool boss Neil Critchley would have set a target of around 50 points to keep the newly-promoted club in the second tier.
However, on the back of four wins in five, Blackpool have almost reached half of that tally, putting them in the mix for an unlikely promotion bid.
Critchley’s side are relishing the tag of minnows of the division, their latest statement result coming against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
At a time when they hold the fourth-best away record in the Championship, Blackpool also head into Wednesday’s game on the back of three successive wins at Bloomfield Road.
Midfielder Keshi Anderson has scored in consecutive fixtures, easing the responsibility on Shayne Lavery and Jerry Yates who have five strikes apiece.
With a number of players still ruled out through injury, Critchley could select the same 11 players which started Blackpool’s win at Sheffield United.
Demetri Mitchell is most likely to come back into the team, potentially replacing Josh Bowler on the right flank.
O’Neill will almost certainly freshen up his Stoke side after their capitulation from a winning position against the Bluebirds.

Sam Clucas, providing that he passes a fitness test, and Mario Vrancic could be restored to a midfield three ahead of Jordan Thompson and Romaine Sawyers.
Danny Batth is also in contention to be handed a start in defence.
