Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has said that the match against QPR during the weekend is a must win for the club in their hopes of avoiding relegation. After a poor second half of the season, Stoke City are extremely close to the relegation zone.
This has led to a lot of pressure from the fans demanding the departure of Tony Pulis, who has not only guided the club into the Premier league but has also kept them in it for several seasons now. However, Stoke have been looking devoid of ideas throughout the season.
Adam, who has not scored a Premier league goal for several months now, has spoken about the importance of getting three points against QPR. He has said that Stoke’s relegation problems will almost be put to bed if they secured three points in the match. However, it will not be easy to do so because Stoke come on the back of just one Premier league win since the turn of the year. They have also managed to secure just five points in the last few months. The club come on the back of the 2-0 defeat against Manchester United last weekend, and Adam has said that it is never easy when they concede an early goal against United.
“It’s a sore one to take but there’s five games to go and we need a couple of victories. We need to go to QPR next week and win. They’re in a bad position so it’s probably going to be an edgy match but they’re at home and if we can stop them in the first 15 or 20 minutes getting the crowd up then we can go there and get a victory. We were in the mix last week and we’re in the mix again this week,” said Adam.
