Stoke boss Tony Pulis is set to make a few adjustments to his team for the game against the Turkish outfit.

Pulis must check on the condition of defender Andy Wilkinson, who picked up a thigh problem in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Manchester United on Saturday, and has indicated that Uruguayan midfielder Diego Arismendi could make a rare appearance.

Goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen will come in for Asmir Begovic, while centre-back Jonathan Woodgate misses out as he is not part of the Potters' Europa League squad and striker Kenwyne Jones remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

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