ETHERINGTON DOUBT FOR STOKE
Stoke winger Matthew Etherington is again a major doubt ahead of Monday's Barclays Premier League clash with West Brom at the Britannia Stadium.
Etherington missed Wednesday's 1-0 defeat at Arsenal with a back-related injury that initially forced him off after 38 minutes of last Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round win over Brighton.
Defender Abdoulaye Faye is unlikely to figure after missing the last four matches with a hamstring injury, whilst striker Mamady Sidibe is out with a ruptured Achilles.
Team (from): Begovic, Huth, Wilson, Delap, Etherington, Whitehead, Jones, Collins, Fuller, Pugh, Whelan, Pennant, Wilkinson, Walters, Carew, Shawcross, Higginbotham, Diao, Sorensen.
