Team news


Stoke City boss Tony Pulis brings his squad to Selhurst Park needing vital points for their survival bid to avoid the drop.

Brighton are currently 6 points behind fourth-from-bottom Stoke but have a superior goal difference, so The Potters will be looking to get at least a draw from tomorrow's game.

Ade Akinbiyi, who is currently on-loan at Stoke, has permission to play against his employers, but he might miss out with a hamstring injury.

Peter Handyside is also doubtful with a similar problem but will undergo a fitness test.


Kit Symons suffered a groin injury during the 3-2 defeat against Millwall on Monday, and has been advised to sit out the rest of the season.

Julian Gray is also doubtful with an ankle injury, but Dele Adebola and Noel Whelan could return. Tony Popovic could also come back after a fitness test today on his strained groin.

Having already scored a decent goal for the Potters, it is an understatement to say that the much-maligned frontman will want to prove himself in front of his "home" crowd.
