Stoke had a disappointing first half of the season as they sit in 17th place with just 25 points from their first 21 matches. Alex Neil will have hoped to use the World Cup break to put his ideas across after taking over the role in at the end of August.
Neil will hope to turn around the Potters home form with them losing three of the last four in front of their own fans. Lewis Baker has been the leading light for Stoke with five for the campaign.
Cardiff also replaced their manager during the season with Mark Hudson stepping in for Steve Morison. The Bluebirds sit 19th in the table just one point above the relegation spots.
The Welsh outfit have been mixed performers on the road recently winning three and losing three of their last six. They could do with finding a more consistent scorer as leading goal getters Callum Robinson and Mark Harris have three each.

Stoke vs Cardiff match stats
It is hard to trust either side in the match markets given their inconsistent form in the opening half of the season. It is best to look to a bet builder to build some value in these markets. Sky Bet have a number including the one we like for the game to have over 1.5 goals, 5+ Stoke corners, 3+ Cardiff corners and 10+ booking points for each side.
Nick Powell is the class act in the Stoke side and their were signs before the World Cup that he was beginning to find his form. Powell has grabbed two in his last five and is worth siding with here. He will like his chances against a Cardiff side with just one clean sheet in the last eight on the road.
