Teams - For Stoke, full-back Marc Wilson has been ruled out by a back problem but Andy Wilkinson is fit again after a groin injury, while Dean Whitehead and Matthew Etherington come into midfield after starting on the bench in last week's defeat by QPR.

Teams - Bolton boss Owen Coyle has made two changes - Zat Knight comes in at the back for David Wheater, who became the latest long-term casualty at Bolton when he damaged knee ligaments last week, while up front Ivan Klasnic replaces David Ngog to play alongside Kevin Davies.

One of our regulars, ex Potter Edd Irwin from Durban,South Africa. He says: "Nice to see Fuller getting a start as we haven't seen much of him this season. Seeing it's the last game of this year's campaign I'm going for 1-1 draw." Cheers Ed, I agree with you about Fuller, he is one of my favourites, a real handful and so skilful for a big guy! Cheers, enjoy the game.

My view - I think Bolton will come up short here and not get the win they need. I think it will be a 1-1 draw, with Reo-Coker to score first which pays a massive 125/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions for today's game? Send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.com and I will post up the best.

FIRST VIEW - Phil has been in touch to say: "Stoke really need to go out on a high. We have had a dreadful run beating only lowly wolves in last 10 games. Lose today and it could be a difficult summer for tony pulis, fans are starting to moan about tactics & style of play." Surely you should be happy - he's established you in the top flight, taken you into Europe and a cup final? Any other views - send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.com

Fancy a bet? Sky Bet go 5/4 for a Stoke win, 13/5 for the draw and 19/10 for a Bolton victory. For a full range of bets, click here.
