Football - Palacios set for Potters return

Stoke midfielders Wilson Palacios and Brek Shea could make their returns to first-team action in Wednesday's Capital One Cup second-round clash with Walsall at the Britannia Stadium.

PA Sport Report

Palacios, who underwent what the Potters would only describe as "a minor surgical procedure" after being pulled out of the first XI for the Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool on August 17, has been back in training along with Shea, sidelined recently by a knee problem but part of the development team on Monday.

Another midfielder, Jamie Ness (thigh), is not yet ready to feature.
