Stoke manager Tony Pulis has just two doubts ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash with West Brom at the Britannia Stadium.

Republic of Iireland midfielder Rory Delap, whom Pulis concedes occasionally suffers with cramp in his calf muscles, will be assessed.

Defender Ryan Shotton, who missed last weekend’s goalless draw at Liverpool with a foot injury, remains touch-and-go, although was at least able to start running again on Wednesday.

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