Stoke City suffered their second defeat in a week on Saturday as Michael O’Neill’s side went down 4-2 away to QPR, despite being 2-0 up at one point in the contest.
The result leaves the Potters sitting perilously close to falling into the relegation zone, with Wigan Athletic sitting just three points off the Bet365 Stadium.
It had all been going so well for the Midlands club as they quickly established a 2-0 lead thanks to Tyrese Campbell and Sam Clucas, before collapsing in the remaining hour of the contest as they shipped four.

Given the manner of the defeat, we felt now was a good time for Football League World Journalist Chris Thorpe to ask members of the STOKE CITY fans from all around the world Facebook group if O’Neill should’ve started two strikers up front as opposed to Campbell as a lone striker.
Naturally this promoted a wide array of responses from supporters from social media earlier today.
Simon Tomkinson: Could’ve, would’ve, should’ve. We didn’t so move on.
Phil Ridgway: No we should’ve played 10 at the back.
Andrew Hollinshead: We can’t defend, it wouldn’t have made a difference. Should have dropped Batth as opposed to Lindsay. Smith isn’t good enough, Ince isn’t good enough plus I thought Chester was poor against QPR. I think it’s time for Butland to be dropped after that shocking performance.
Aaron Poole: Yeah Campbell and Diouf.
Stephen Johnson: It doesn’t matter how many were upfront we scored two and should have seen the game out, the defence is to blame.
David Booth: Maybe two in goal would have been better.
Adrian Joseph Kelly: We need to sort that out. Defence also needs some work as it’s rubbish.
