Stoke manager Tony Pulis may opt to keep faith with the line-up which secured their first win of the season for tomorrow’s visit of West Ham.
Monday’s victory over Aston Villa ended a run of three successive defeats and Pulis, who has been in charge of training all week despite the death of his mother on Monday, could send out the same players again.
Midfielder Marc Wilson enjoyed a promising debut and is likely to keep fellow transfer deadline-day signing Jermaine Pennant out of the side.
Forward Eidur Gudjohnsen will be on the bench again as he is eased back into English football after his move from Monaco.
Provisional squad: Sorensen, Huth, Faye, Collins, Shawcross, Wilson, Delap, Whitehead, Etherington, Walters, Jones, Fuller, Pennant, Gudjohnsen, Tuncay, Higginbotham, Begovic, Wilkinson, Whelan, Pugh.
