Stoke boss Tony Pulis hopes to have a trio of players back available for selection.

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.

Midfielder Adel Taarabt is not expected to feature for QPR after spending the week with Morocco on international duty.

Neil Warnock does have midfielder Akos Buzsaky (Achilles) available while Bradley Orr (Achilles) and defender Matt Connolly (ankle) are close to a return from injury and could feature.

Defender Fitz Hall (hamstring) is set to miss out but there was positive news for midfielder Kieron Dyer, who started running in training this week. Striker DJ Campbell is two to three weeks away from full-time training after having a protective boot removed from his foot.

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

QPR (from): Kenny, Hall, Gabbidon, Connolly, Taarabt, Traore, Bothroyd, Faurlin, Orr, Buzsaky, Dyer, Barton, Young, Smith, Helguson, Murphy, Wright-Phillips, Ferdinand, Puncheon.
