Stoke City defender Andy Wilkinson has urged fans not to lose faith.
Attempts to match last year's sale of around 22,000 season tickets have been hampered by a run of one win in 10 games â€“ and fans only have until next Wednesday to renew at the cheapest prices.
"It's understandable, but if we can get a win on Saturday against West Brom we can push on and get a good finish to the season.
"We need to stick together, work together and get the fortress back at the Britannia. The fans are a massive part of that," Wilkinson told The Sentinel.
