Blues boss sweating on Larsson

Sweden international Larsson rolled his ankle in the goalless draw

with Chelsea on Saturday and will be subject to a fitness test

before the Potteries clash. McLeish expects Joe Hart to be

available despite the goalkeeper suffering a head injury in the

Boxing Day clash. Lee Bowyer also suffered a knock against the

league leaders but defenders Roger Johnson and Liam Ridgewell

appeared to come through unscathed after returning from injury.

Blues (from): Hart, Carr, R Johnson, Dann, Ridgewell, Larsson,

Ferguson, Bowyer, McFadden, Jerome, Benitez, Maik Taylor, Fahey,

Vignal, Carsley, Phillips, McSheffrey, D Johnson, Queudrue,

Parnaby.
