Tough call.....we’ve never won there for about 700 Flaming years so going 1-1 (Toney).....we might sneak a late winner though IF tf keeps the same starting line up in midfield as weds ;)

Since 1936 we've played 13 league games away to Stoke & gained points from just 4 score draws, so obviously a win would be very welcome .... after last night's good team performance .... 1-1 .... or even 1-2 us, yes please!

If Stoke think they are going to be playing the Brentford side they beat not that long ago they are mistaken. The game plan that worked for them that day will not be sufficient as we now have the option to be a lot more direct and will turn them and get behind them. We can still pass them off the park of course. Patchy start to the season for them and they lost one of their back four to a red card this week. 2-0 to us and Stoke will have IT problems.

Plus the side that played them at the end of the season was running on empty. People have got their knickers in a twist about playing teams with 'physicality' but we've got more than enough in our armoury to combat that. Just a case of the team gelling Lots of positive signs of that happening last night and we'll only get better over the next few weeks. I don't think there's anyone to fear in this division.. 2-0 bees Toney, Mbuemo

Toney was clearly annoyed that he didn't score 4 last night and I can't see that happening again this season. So with a couple of the others contributing I'll go for 6-1. They'll get one coz I we've got a dodgy keeper. :bounce:

Lot of confidence on here. They are still hard to beat and we will struggle to break them down. Think this will be very low scoring. Would love to sneak a 1-0, but think they will edge it by that scoreline.

Sooooooooo want to batter them after last season. If we can't win, I'd take a draw and James McClean to get a season ending injury whilst committing a red card foul 😈

Going to be tough. I think they will be play off contenders this season. 3 points would really put a marker down but I think a draw is more likely..

Keep Josh, Jensen and Vitaly as the midfield trio and we'll be good for 3 points

Think this will be a lot tougher than Wednesday. Our defence will be properly tested with Fletcher and no Pontus to lead us (unless there is a miraculous recovery from his hammy). I know his defending hasn’t been great but we’ll need someone to step up and provide a captains performance. Hope we can come away with something.

Feeling more confident about this one after Wednesday, but It's still going to be very difficult. Eould be very happy for us to come away with a point, maybe 1-1, or 0-0.

Have to be wary of the second balls dropping to the likes of Clucas given this is a fundamental part of their offensive game.........the likes of Jensen/Josh will have to drop deeper when they break to avoid a repetition of this successful tactic last season.

They're pretty ponderous in possession from deeper positions and their only outlet to really stretch teams is Tyrese Campbell on the left so that whole right side will have to be vigilant from front to back.

Stoke can give any side a hard time and will try and fustrate us.

Stoke 1 Bees 4

It’s Stroud tomorrow!!!
Didn't take him long, did it?!

I would have thought that there must be a little time served between a ref losing us a game with a major decision overturned. Especially in a critical match such as the play-offs?

I honestly thought that we would be spared him for a few weeks. Oh well. 🙄

Maybe he will bend over backwards to be fair to us.

0-0 and another point in the locker or 0-5 and Torpedo Toney declares at 5! Yes, getting a little carried away!

Having listened to the excellent podcast highlighted in the Sian Massey-Ellis thread the ref assessment system is flawed if Stroud is still in the Championship.

Stoke's form so far is nothing special. We look to be hitting our stride as new signings bed in quickly. If Ghoddos and Janelt aren't totally knackered then Bees win 2 0, Toney double

I would not have that ***** in the Trowbridge and district league.

Improve the defending on the flanks as this is where Wednesday troubled us. Might need to look at who can best provide the tracking to do that. If not changes needed up front. Keep it tight and Tony can take a chance for us.

We’ll create chances and you’d bet on Toney putting one away. Could do with someone else chipping in though!

Weather could make this even more unpredictable but I'll go with a 1-1 but hopefully we nick it.
