An interesting encounter are set to entertain football fans this midweek when Stoke City play host to Swansea City at Britannia Stadium, which is not an easy battle ground for any teams in the Premier League. Playing in front of their loyal crowd, Stoke won't be shy in targeting for all three points, especially since they are keen on keeping that mid-table position last until the end of this current league season.
However, Swansea also have similar ideas as their weekend derby win over Cardiff City should also lift their confidence ahead of their travel to face Stoke this Wednesday, February 12. The departure of Michael Laudrup didn't seem to provide negative effects for them, so they will surely battle hard in search for maximum result this midweek, despite having to play in a difficult stadium.
Stoke City failed to take maximum points from that midweek encounter as they were held into a draw by Swansea at Brittania stadium in an interesting match. The home side actually got off to a bright start on that match as they went one goal up with an effort from Peter Crouch after 17 minutes of play. However, that lead was canceled out early in the second period as Chico netting home the equalizing goal for the away side, which lasted until the final whistle blown.
