Full Time: All over here. Stoke beat Norwich thanks to a Charlie Adam goal early in the second half.
Norwich continuing to huff and puff but they have not created a chance worthy of the name in this second half.
Poor miss from Crouch yet again as he spoons a rebound over the bar. This time he is glad to see the offside flag.
Holt and Huth involved in some pushing and shoving off the ball and the referee is forced to step in.
Another ball into the box from deep by Norwich and Holt challenges Begovic for it, but once again the goalkeeper holds on.
Norwich attacking with Stoke playing on the break. The home side are deep but defending well enough.
Begovic claims another cross. He is looking assured and Norwich are struggling for ideas in the final third.
Chance! Adam does brilliantly to win the ball on the right and then get away to the byline before squaring to the unmarked Crouch but the tall striker completely misses the ball. Woeful miss.
Play restarts and Stoke have a free-kick that Adam whips in from the right but Jerome cannot quite latch onto it as Bunn claims.
Shotton with a long throw and the ball is then fizzed across goal but there is nobody on the end of it.
Adam on the attack again but his shot is deflected wide. Not spotted by the officials and a goal-kick is given.
Long ball from the back and Crouch wins the header. Adam gambles on it and makes a good run. He then nods it away from the defender before sweeping the ball past Bunn to give Stoke the lead.
Holt is booked for going through the back of the defender near the byline as the ball was being shepherded out. Clumsy and unnecessary.
Walters gets to the knockdown on the left edge of the box and has players in support but instead shoots and gets it all wrong. Well over the bar.
Those bookings have caused the game to become even more disjointed. Neither side looking particularly fluid.
Bunn appeared to just have the ball in his grasp when Jerome clattered into him with a high boot. Yellow card.
Kamara showing some urgency down the right but he is forced to turn back as there are so few options in attack.
Snodgrass with the outswinger. It is cleared as far as Kamara but the Norwich man drills the ball over the bar.
Chance! Adam swings the ball in from the right and Jerome pulls away well to hook an effort towards goal but the effort is blocked by the arm of N'Zonzi. He seemed to move his arm towards the ball curiously!
Stoke actually having plenty of the ball but Norwich have probably had the best two chances. Stop-start affair, still.
Richard: "Kind of wondering why we bought Becchio..The boss never plays him!!! And why start Pilkington and Hoolahan on the bench?? Arguably two of our better attacking options."
Stoke showing very little quality in the opposition half. Unusually, they've had plenty of opportunities from set-pieces but really wasted them.
Another speculative effort from Norwich. Johnson knocks the ball over the bar on the half-volley. He was leaning back and didn't really commit to the shot.
Whelan crosses from the right but the ball won't bounce for the home side and when Jerome gets it he spreads the play out wide but there's nobody there.
Another header from Shawcross but this time it is a defensive one back to Begovic - misplaced. That's a corner to Norwich. But Stoke clear.
Adam takes but it is an outswinger to the near post and Shawcross can only divert the ball over the bar.
Tributes being paid at the Britannia Stadium for former Stoke midfielder Paul Ware, who sadly died last week aged just 42.
Penalties are one variety of set-piece that the Potters have struggled with this season. In fact, Jonathan Walters is the only player to fail to score with more than one penalty this season (2). He's in the team as ever though. Walters has featured in each of Stoke's last 87 Premier League games, the longest current run by an outfielder.
What kind of game are we in for? Before you accuse me of buying into the stereotype, here are some Opta stats for you: No ground has seen more goals from corners than the Britannia Stadium this season (10) and Stoke have scored three of the seven goals from throws in the Premier League this season.
Edd says: "Ex-Potter here from Durban,South Africa. With a little sigh of relief with last week's win, I'm sure Stoke will play a better game of football than we have had to endure lately. I would like to see the same team line-up who started last week as it worked out very well. I'm going for a 2-0 win which should make us safe."
Neither side are in great form. This game pits together the two teams to have won the fewest Premier League games in 2013 (two apiece). Stoke have not won consecutive Premier League games since December 1st.
Stoke: Begovic; Shotton, Shawcross, Huth, Wilkinson; Jerome, Whelan, Nzonzi, Adam, Walters; Crouch. Subs: Sorensen; Cameron, Jones, Owen, Whitehead, Kightly, Etherington.
Norwich: Bunn; R.Martin, Bassong, R.Bennett, Whittaker; Johnson, Howson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Kamara; Holt. Subs: Camp; Pilkington, Hoolahan, E.Bennett, Garrido, Becchio, Barnett.
Chris: "I really wasn't expecting this Stoke team to be involved in this relegation battle, because they have a good bunch of players and a manager who knows the game very well. Stoke aren't safe yet but if they manage to get a win against Norwich, I think they will be safe."

Four of the last six matches between the sides have ended with a 1-0 scoreline and six of the Potters last eight league matches have gone under 2.5 goals.
