Fulham could face a depleted Stoke defence at the Britannia Stadium tomorrow as Andy Wilkinson is a doubt for the Premier League clash.

Wilkinson had to come off in the first half of Monday’s 1-1 draw at West Ham due to a back problem and has undergone a scan. If he is ruled out, his replacement at Upton Park, Ryan Shotton, is likely to deputise once again at full-back.

Midfielder Dean Whitehead is back available after being suspended for the match against the Hammers, but striker Michael Owen is not expected to be ready to make his return from a hamstring complaint, while midfielder Rory Delap (hernia) and defender Marc Wilson (broken leg) remain sidelined.

Provisional Stoke squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Shawcross, Cameron, Upson, Shotton, Whelan, Etherington, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters, Kightly, Adam, Edu, Nzonzi, Ness, Whitehead.
