Don't forget that live audio commentary of tonight's game is available to subscribers on Stoke City Player - Nigel Johnson and Matt Sandoz should already be broadcasting :-)
The Potters need to win tonight's game by three clear goals to progress through to the knockout stages - AND for group leaders Bradford City to win at Morecambe tomorrow evening.
They could conceivably draw the 90 minute match and both go through, as both teams will get at least a point whether they win or lose on penalties. Hope that makes sense!
Thanks we shall pass that on to Nigel and Matt. Maybe they haven't dialled in quite yet...
The two teams walk out onto the pitch now - kick off is almost upon us
Former Potter Tom Soares is amongst Bury's subsitutes tonight, who have a lively bunch of fans here in the Upper Tier of the Q-railing Stand
Peter Crouch gets the game underway with City shooting towards the Sharp Stand in this first half
A cold rainy night here at the bet365 Stadium
Edwards flights a ball into the box from the right hand side for Crouch but that one is easy enough for Ben Williams to claim
A rough challenge on Imbula near the halfway line there, that's two suffered by him now. Bury players looking to rough up our foreign selection of players, perhaps?
Ngoy puts Neil Danns under pressure and he has to rush a backpass to his keeper. That one was wayward and it's a Stoke corner
In it comes and Bury put it back behind for another. Crouch rises in a bid to get on the end of it but the referee penalises him for a foul and the free kick is awarded to the visitors
Edwards gets flattened on the flank in another tough tackle from Bury. That one looked a bit late too
Action at the other end and Bojan does well to feed Ngoy in on the left hand side. He turns inside his man and gets in the area but looks to turn inside another before shooting and is challenged. He's got his head in his hands there, he knows he should have taken a shot
