Stoke v Bolton preview

Stoke striker Eidur Gudjohnsen has a neck injury, although the
Icelander is unlikely to have been involved. Gudjohnsen has endured
a frustrating time after signing a one-year deal in the summer from
Monaco and has made only four substitute appearances in the top
flight for the Potters. Tuncay Sanli is looking to retain his place
in the side after scoring in the FA Cup draw against Cardiff but
Mamady Sidibe remains sidelined with an Achilles injury. Bolton are
again short on numbers for their trip to the Potteries. Striker
Ivan Klasnic (groin) became the latest addition to their injury
list when he was forced off at half-time during last week’s FA Cup
tie against York. Gretar Steinsson (knee) and Stuart Holden (thigh)
are both hoping to return but still rated doubtful by manager Owen
Coyle. Lee Chung-yong is on international duty at the Asian Cup
with South Korea while Joey O’Brien, Sean Davis, Ricardo Gardner
and Jlloyd Samuel remain on the sidelines. Stoke (from): Begovic,
Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Faye, Collins, Wilkinson, Higginbotham,
Pugh, Delap, Diao, Wilson, Whitehead, Whelan, Etherington, Pennant,
Walters, Fuller, Gudjohnsen, Jones, Tuncay. Bolton (from):
Jaaskelainen, Robinson, Cahill, Knight, Muamba, Petrov, K Davies,
Elmander, Blake, Taylor, Ricketts, Alonso, Moreno, M Davies, Cohen,
Holden, Steinsson, Bogdan.
