Stoke boss Tony Pulis hopes to have a trio of players back available for selection for tomorrow’s Premier League clash with QPR at the Britannia Stadium.

Ryan Shawcross, Marc Wilson (both muscle strains) and Matthew Etherington (back) could all return to the Potters team after missing the 5-0 defeat at Bolton on November 6 through injury.

Ricardo Fuller (Achilles) is nearing a comeback but this game is too soon for him, while Mamady Sidibe (knee) remains sidelined.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Nash, Huth, Upson, Woodgate, Shawcross, Wilson, Wilkinson, Whelan, Whitehead, Diao, Etherington, Walters, Jerome, Shotton, Arismendi, Pennant, Delap, Crouch, Palacios, Jones, Higginbotham.
