Stoke duo may miss run-in

Ross Kinnaird

Marc Wilson and Matty Etherington are unsurprisingly doubts for this weekend's match against Norwich, along with midfielder Charlie Adam.

Making matters worse, Stoke's first-choice left-side pairing look like they could be out for the remainder of the season.

Pulis confirmed that the duo were undergoing treatment in a bid to get them back on the field, but is unsure if they will be fit to feature again this term.

He said: "They're a concern. We don't know when, or if, they'll be back.

"Both of them are having intensive treatment and it's a case of keeping everything crossed.

Pulis hasn't seemed amenable to throwing American Brek Shea into the mix, so likely we'll see more of the same from Stoke this weekend. Andy Wilkinson will likely play at left-back again, with Geoff Cameron coming in on the right. That would move Ryan Shotton back into midfield.

If Charlie Adam doesn't make the game, maybe Stoke goes for it and plays both Peter Crouch and Kenwyne Jones in a more attacking 4-4-2!
