Stoke boss and defender confident they can return to winning ways

One of Stoke City's players is confident they can bounce back to winning ways after the midweek defeat to Preston.

Danny Batth says the lads are pleased they have a game so quickly after the 2-0 reverse.

It was only the second defeat in nine home games for boss Michael O'Neill.

Stoke head to the capital without wingers James McClean and Thibaud Verlinden who both suffered knee ligament injuries following Wednesday night's encounter.
