The Potters are hoping full-back Marc Wilson, who has been out since October with a broken leg, will play a reserve game next week as he builds up to a first-team return.
Stoke made two new signings on transfer deadline day, goalkeeper Jack Butland and winger Brek Shea - but neither will be involved in the short term, with Butland having been loaned back to Birmingham and USA international Shea still recovering from a foot operation. Defenders Matthew Upson and Rory Delap have left the club.
