The 26-year-old Republic of Ireland international has missed just three Premier League games since Huth suffered a knee injury during the Potters' 2-0 victory against Sunderland in November.

With Mark Hughes' side sitting in mid-table with five games of the Premier League season remaining, the former Portsmouth star admits he would like to challenge Huth for his role once he is fully fit again.

"Yes, it's what I've got to do," Wilson told The Sentinel. "You want to give the manager some food for thought and I just go out and try to give my best every game.

"I'm enjoying playing centre-half and am feeling extremely comfortable.

"Since I came to Stoke I've enjoyed being here, but even more so now and long may that continue."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
