Fulham v Stoke preview

Steve Sidwell is pushing to make his Fulham debut.
The midfielder was an unused substitute at Wigan last weekend following his switch from Aston Villa and now has a full week of training under his belt.
Boss Mark Hughes has no new injuries but is still without Bobby Zamora (leg), Philippe Senderos (Achilles) and Matthew Briggs (calf), while Mark Schwarzer is on Asian Cup duty with Australia.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis will revert to his strongest line-up after making 10 changes for the midweek FA Cup win over Cardiff.
However Jon Walters will hope to keep his place after scoring both goals in South Wales, which John Carew could go straight into the side up front after signing on loan from Aston Villa.
Danny Higginbotham came off with a hamstring strain in midweek and is unlikely to recover in time to be included.
Fulham (from): Stockdale, Pantsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Davies, Riise, Murphy, Sidwell, Etuhu, Duff, Dempsey, E Johnson, Kamara, Gera, Dembele, Etheridge, Salcido, Greening, A Johnson, Halliche.
Stoke (from): Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Faye, Collins, Wilkinson, Pugh, Wilson, Delap, Whitehead, Whelan, Pennant, Etherington, Tuncay, Jones, Walters, Fuller, Carew.
