Darts ace Lewis tips Potters for top-10 finish
Potteries darts ace Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis believes his beloved Stoke City can maintain their promising form this season.
The Potters continue to impress in the Barclays Premier League under the shrewd stewardship of Tony Pulis, who has transformed the club’s fortunes in his second spell in charge.
Home form has been a crucial factor in giving Stoke a platform to compete in the top flight.

Stoke are the only side undefeated at home in the Premier League this season and confidence is high after an unbeaten December that included a convincing win over Liverpool and draws against Everton and Tottenham.
Lewis, who recently failed in his attempt to win the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace for a third successive time, believes it’s an exciting time for the club.
“I think we’re doing brilliant,” said the 27-year-old, who is 9/1 with tournament sponsors Ladbrokes to be victorious at Ally Pally next year.
“We’ve attracted some great players to the club recently.
“I know Michael Owen’s injured at the moment, but if we can get him fit, alongside Peter Crouch, Charlie Adam and Michael Kightly, who’s had a great season, we could get a few more goals in the bag.
“We’re 10th at the minute, which is fantastic for us.”
Pulis was handed a timely boost recently after star defender Ryan Shawcross signed a new long-term deal to quash speculation linking the England international with a return to former club Manchester United.
Lewis is full of praise for the 25-year-old, as he added: “I think he’s one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
“He’s quick, reads the game really well and when a ball comes in the air, there aren’t many who can beat him to a header.
“He’s one of Tony Pulis’ best signings.”
Recalling his first Stoke game, Lewis said: “We played against Tranmere Rovers at the old Victoria Ground.
“I was seven or eight years old at the time, but I can’t remember the score. My granddad said to my mum we were conker picking instead of going to the match!”
