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.
