Stoke will still have suspended duo Rory Delap and Matthew Etherington out of the squad to face Aston Villa on Sunday, but manager Tony Pulis hopes striker Ricardo Fuller will take some part in the match.
Fuller has been out with a shoulder problem and a late decision will be taken on his involvement.
Liam Lawrence, who returned to action last week after an ankle injury, and had another 45 minutes in a reserve game in midweek, may also be in contention for a starting place.
Team from: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Abdoulaye Faye, Higginbotham, Lawrence, Tonge, Diao, Amdy Faye, Pugh, Sidibe, Cresswell, Beattie, Simonsen, Whelan, Kitson, Camara, Sonko, Fuller.
