Home form will save us - Whelan

Stoke City midfielder Glenn Whelan believes his team will avoid relegation from the Premier League if they carry on winning at the Britannia Stadium.Twenty two of Stoke's 26 points this season have come from their home games. The Republic of Ireland man told BBC Radio Stoke: "Every team that's come to the Britannia has had a tough game."We've got one of the best home records, and if we can nick one or two away wins, which we're desperate for, we'll pull away from the bottom three." Whelan's injury-time equaliser against Aston Villa on Sunday could not prevent Stoke dropping into the relegation zone.Victories for Blackburn and Middlesbrough leave all three teams level on 26 points, four clear of bottom club West Bromwich Albion.
