Peter Odemwingie and Shane Long are both on the bench, while Jonas Olsson and Gabriel Tamas return in defence. Graham Dorrans replaces the injured Paul Scharner in midfield.
    • 14:20 Ryan Shotton has passed a late fitness test on a bruised foot and takes his place in the Stoke side. His return in place of Wilson Palacios is the only change from the Potters' last Premier League game against Liverpool. Rory Delap has also recovered from tightness in his calf muscles, and starts.
