Fuller missing for Potters

04 February 2011 01:00
Stoke manager Tony Pulis will be without striker Ricardo Fuller for the game against Sunderland although Ryan Shawcross is set to return from suspension. Fuller is set to miss the Barclays Premier League game after being granted compassionate leave to attend his uncle's funeral in Jamaica and is expected to return next Tuesday. However, defender Shawcross is available after a two-match ban and, with no fresh injury worries, Pulis is set to choose from an almost full-strength squad. Matthew Etherington and Kenwyne Jones sat out the 2-0 defeat by Liverpool in midweek but could well return for the team`s third match in six days.
