Paul Lambert will take his seat in the Stoke City dugout for the very first time on Saturday afternoon when his new charges lock horns with Huddersfield Town. The Potters have been conceding goals aplenty this season and Lambert certainly has an enviable task ahead of him as he looks to keep the side in the top-flight for another season.
The sacking of Mark Hughes was no huge surprise given Stoke's dismal campaign thus far although Lambert is a somewhat surprising appointment given his unconvincing managerial record. The new Potters boss was in the Aston Villa hot-seat and also had spells at Championship sides Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers, however he is in for a rough ride at the Bet365 Stadium that's for certain and it is doubtful as to whether he really is the right man for the job.

He appears to have impressed the Stoke City hierarchy however and one would imagine that his main area of focus will be on the Potters' dismal defence. Stoke City's 3-0 thrashing at Old Trafford earlier this week took their total number of conceded league goals to fifty and with nine defeats from their last twelve matches, we don't fancy their chances of collecting all three points in front of their home fans on Saturday afternoon.
Nevertheless Huddersfield Town are also having a pretty hard time of things of late with the Terriers heading into this match on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to West Ham United although while they will doubtless fancy their chances of success in Stoke this weekend, we'll be siding with this match ending all-square.
