|5/1||Peter Crouch is 5/1 with William Hill to score in a Stoke win over Swansea City|
Crouch remains confident Stoke will turn their form around,however, and hopes that things will click into place when they visit Swansea City on Sunday.
"There has to be a bit of patience," the former England international told the Stoke Sentinel. "It's always difficult changing styles and, when a new manager comes in, there's normally a settling-in period but we've got the right ideas and I believe we're heading in the right direction.
"We've played some good stuff, although a couple of games at home haven't been great, but it's only a matter of time before everything clicks and we go on a good run."
