Stoke boss Tony Pulis has left all 11 players who started Sunday's 2-1 Premier League victory over Tottenham at home.

The Welshman only brought 15 players to Turkey and the team that faces Besiktas will be made up largely of his second string.

Youngsters Michael Clarkson and Lucas Dawson have also travelled while Rory Delap and Andy Wilkinson, who both missed out on Sunday with back problems, could play.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Nash, Wilkinson, Higginbotham, Diao, Upson, Clarkson, Dawson, Palacios, Arismendi, Pennant, Jones, Fuller, Jerome, Delap.
