Stoke City defender could join exclusive club with goal at Sheffield Wednesday today

Stoke City travel to Sheffield Wednesday today hoping to get their season up and running after a poor lead up to the international break.

The Potters, despite a summer of heavy investment, have failed to impress this term under Gary Rowett, and will be hoping today’s tricky away tie at Hillsborough gives them a chance to get things up and running with a positive result.

One man who will be hoping to contribute to the cause is defender Erik Pieters, who can join an exclusive club if he manages to find the net once again this afternoon.

According to the Stoke Sentinel, Pieters would join a select group of only 35 players in the history of the club to score in three successive away games, the last player being able to accoplish the feat being Peter Thorne back in 2000.

Pieters has surprisingly scored two belters in his last two outing against Preston and West Brom respectively, and he will be looking to continue that run today when his team make the trip to Sheffield to face Jos Luhukay’s men.

Stoke fans, what do you think? Can Pieters join the club and do it again? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
