Stoke striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has a neck injury, although the Icelander is unlikely to have been involved.

Gudjohnsen has endured a frustrating time after signing a one-year deal in the summer from Monaco and has made only four substitute appearances in the top flight for the Potters.

Tuncay Sanli is looking to retain his place in the side after scoring in the FA Cup draw against Cardiff but Mamady Sidibe remains sidelined with an Achilles injury.

Bolton are again short on numbers for their trip to the Potteries.

Striker Ivan Klasnic (groin) became the latest addition to their injury list when he was forced off at half-time during last week's FA Cup tie against York.

Gretar Steinsson (knee) and Stuart Holden (thigh) are both hoping to return but still rated doubtful by manager Owen Coyle.

Lee Chung-yong is on international duty at the Asian Cup with South Korea while Joey O'Brien, Sean Davis, Ricardo Gardner and Jlloyd Samuel remain on the sidelines.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Faye, Collins, Wilkinson, Higginbotham, Pugh, Delap, Diao, Wilson, Whitehead, Whelan, Etherington, Pennant, Walters, Fuller, Gudjohnsen, Jones, Tuncay.

Bolton (from): Jaaskelainen, Robinson, Cahill, Knight, Muamba, Petrov, K Davies, Elmander, Blake, Taylor, Ricketts, Alonso, Moreno, M Davies, Cohen, Holden, Steinsson, Bogdan.
