Stoke City No2 Dave Kemp admits they need to find a win.
Stoke will travel to Everton seeking only their second win in 12 league games as they try to pull away from a cluster of clubs like Sunderland, West Ham and Norwich treading water just above the long-term relegation strugglers.
"We have had a barren period goals-wise," Kemp acknowledged, "and we need a lucky break to hopefully get us up and running.
"The last two performances against Newcastle and West Brom have been pretty good.
"If we'd got a break in either we could have taken the three points."
