The 22-year-old has missed the Potters' last three games since being sent off for the tackle with broke Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey's leg on February 27.

He picked up an ankle niggle in training on Wednesday to throw his return into doubt but he should be fit to face Spurs and is likely to return in central defence, with Danny Collins favourite to make way.

Ricardo Fuller is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up, while David Kitson could also get the nod ahead of Mama Sidibe after impressing from the bench alongside Fuller last weekend.

Glenn Whelan is the Potters' only fresh injury worry so Liam Lawrence stands by to return on the wing. Louis Moult may be on the bench for the third successive game but Steve Simonsen looks set to join Sheffield United.

Potters (from): Sorensen, Wilkinson, Abdoulaye Faye, Huth, Shawcross, Collins, Whitehead, Lawrence, Pugh, Whelan, Tuncay, Delap, Etherington, Sidibe, Fuller, Kitson, Higginbotham, Begovic, Davies, Moult.
