Andy Wilkinson is Stoke's one major fitness doubt ahead of the game.

The defender is struggling with knee and calf problems and, although he was fit enough to play in the 3-1 Premier League victory over Blackburn on Saturday, he is still touch and go.

Cameron Jerome is available again after serving his one-game European ban while goalkeeper Asmir Begovic will hope for a run-out after seeing Thomas Sorensen take over the number one spot in the Premier League.

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