Pulis hints at Moult inclusion

Stoke boss Tony Pulis has hinted Louis Moult will play ahead of Tuncay, Mama Sidibe and James Beattie if Ricardo Fuller misses the Wolves game.

Fuller is struggling with an ankle injury ahead of Sunday's trip to Molineux but Pulis may be tempted to keep the striker on the bench in any case, with the 30-year-old a booking away from a two-match ban.

Beattie is eyeing a return to first-team action after making his comeback from injury for the reserves in midweek, and Pulis also has the option of Tuncay or Sidibe as a partner for David Kitson.

However, the Potters boss has played down the chances of Beattie facing Wolves and claimed Moult, who only has one substitute appearance to his name in the Premier League, is favourite to come in.

Pulis said: "He (Beattie) played in a reserve game on Tuesday and looked a little bit short to be honest.

"The lad Louis Moult has been on the bench. If Ric is not fit I will most probably go with Louis.

"He has done really well and scored a lot of goals in the reserves and did well again the other night."
