PREM: Stoke City v Hull City preview


Stoke City v Hull City preview

Goalkeeper Jack Butland is moving closer to his long-awaited Stoke return and could make the bench against Hull.


Butland has been out since injuring his ankle with England in March 2016 but after featuring for the under-23s in midweek he could step up with Shay Given (back) a minor doubt.

Joe Allen has been ruled out after suffering a knock against Burnley, Jonathan Walters is a doubt and Ibrahim Afellay could be out for the season after undergoing a knee operation.

Hull defender Harry Maguire faces a late fitness test.

Maguire missed last week's defeat at Manchester City due to a knee injury and although he returned to full training this week, the centre-half remains doubtful as the Tigers chase their first league win on the road since August.

Midfielder Tom Huddlestone is available after serving a three-match ban and striker Dieumerci Mbokani (hamstring) is back in contention, but defender Omar Elabdellaoui (back) is still out.

Stoke (from): Grant, Given, Butland, Bardsley, Shawcross, Pieters, Martins Indi, Muniesa, Cameron, Whelan, Adam, Imbula, Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Sobhi, Walters, Crouch, Berahino, Diouf, Bony.

Hull (from): Provisional squad: Jakupovic, Marshall, Robertson, Davies, Dawson, Maguire, Ranocchia, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Evandro, Meyler, Henriksen, Grosicki , Hernandez, Diomande, N'Diaye, Clucas, Markovic, Niasse, Mbokani.
