Stoke City-Burnley Preview

Burnley look to win their second match on the bounce and sixth in eight overall Tuesday night when they host a struggling Stoke City side that has Mark Hughes under fire.

The Clarets (8-4-4) are seventh in the table on 28, trailing Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference, and coming off a 1-0 home victory over fellow surprise package Watford at home Saturday. Scott Arfield, starting in the place of injured playmaking midfielder Robbie Brady, had the lone goal just before halftime, tucking home a pass from Johann Berg Gudmundsson from close range.

Burnley saw the match through in the second 45 minutes, playing with a man advantage due to a red card issued to Watford's Marvin Zeegelaar for a rash challenge on Clarets midfielder Steven Defour.
