Very few sides have managed to record four successive wins in the Championship this season, and Stoke were the latest to try and fail on Wednesday evening.
Having travelled to Ashton Gate with the chance to move into third spot, the Potters ended the night in sixth position after going down by a 1-0 scoreline.
While Stoke have still collected 10 points from a possible 15, Michael O’Neill will be unhappy with five defeats coming from their last nine second-tier fixtures.
Stoke twice hit the woodwork during the setback in the South-West, but O’Neill may feel that it is time to unleash Tyrese Campbell after six substitute appearances since his recovery from a serious knee injury.
Saturday’s game is the first of three against playoff rivals over the coming weeks, increasing the pressure on a team who have sometimes struggled in the final third.
Stoke will be without Joe Allen for Saturday’s fixture after the Welshman was sent off for two yellow cards at Bristol City.
Allen joins Sam Surridge in serving a suspension, and a reshuffle could see Josh Tymon move into midfield with Alfie Doughty starting at left wing-back.
Campbell is pushing for a chance in attack, while Ben Wilmot may come back into the back three.
Mowbray will wait to see if Daniel Ayala recovers from a minor ankle injury before naming his side for the game in the Potteries.
Jan Paul van Hecke is back from suspension so may deputise for the Spaniard, but the rest of the side should stay the same.
