Stoke winger Matthew Etherington will undergo a fitness test ahead of the Potters’ Barclays Premier League trip to Swansea on Sunday.
Etherington limped out of last night’s 2-1 Europa League Group E victory over Besiktas with a dead leg.
Defender Jonathan Woodgate is available again having missed that game because he is not part of Stoke’s squad for Europe, and the rested Asmir Begovic is set to return in goal in place Thomas Sorensen.
Salif Diao (fractured cheekbone) is another injury doubt, while Kenwyne Jones (hamstring) is not expected to make his comeback until after the international break.
Provisional squad: Begovic, Wilson, Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Wilkinson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Walters, Sorensen, Shotton, Arismendi, Pennant, Delap, Crouch, Palacios, Jerome, Nash.
