Shotton was dismissed in the 90th minute of last Saturday's goalless draw at Aston Villa, collecting two yellow cards, and now Pulis must decide between Andy Wilkinson, Dean Whitehead or Matthew Upson as his replacement.

Pulis welcomes back Charlie Adam, with the midfielder completing his own one-game suspension, but there is still no room for Michael Owen as the striker remains short of fitness following recent groin and hamstring niggles.
