Stoke City have taken two points from nine at home while Tottenham Hotspur have won their last three matches.

Stoke team news

Ryan Shawcross is likely to go straight back into the Stoke side.

The 22-year-old has missed the Potters' last three matches since being sent off for the tackle with broke Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey's leg on 27th February.

He picked up an ankle niggle in training on Wednesday to throw his return into doubt but he should be fit to face Spurs and is likely to return in central defence, with Danny Collins favourite to make way.

Ricardo Fuller is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up, while David Kitson could also get the nod ahead of Mama Sidibe after impressing from the bench alongside Fuller last weekend.

Glenn Whelan is the Potters' only fresh injury worry so Liam Lawrence stands by to return on the wing. Louis Moult may be on the bench for the third successive match but Steve Simonsen looks set to join Sheffield United.

Spurs team news

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has a hamstring injury and misses out.

He joins Ledley King (thigh), Jermaine Jenas (groin), Aaron Lennon (groin), David Bentley (groin/virus) on the sidelines, while Danny Rose (knee) and Kyle Walker (arm) are also out.

Defender Jonathan Woodgate (groin) and goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini (wrist/pelvis) are long-term absentees.


Stoke City: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Abdoulaye Faye, Huth, Shawcross, Collins, Whitehead, Lawrence, Pugh, Whelan, Tuncay, Delap, Etherington, Sidibe, Fuller, Kitson, Higginbotham, Begovic, Davies, Moult.
