Clucas suspended as Stoke face Sheffield Wednesday

Stoke midfielder Sam Clucas serves the final game of his three-match suspension for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday.

Young winger Thibaud Verlinden will be hoping to build on an impressive league debut prior to the international break by retaining his place in the side.

Striker Benik Afobe is pushing for a recall having dropped to the bench last time out to rest a hamstring problem.

Full-back Tom Edwards missed England U20s’ game against Portugal on Tuesday after pulling out with an injury sustained in the first game of the international break and is a doubt.

Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher is unlikely to feature after a groin injury against Blackburn last time out forced him to miss Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Manager Steve Bruce has other options, however, as Fernando Forestieri (hamstring) and Lucas Joao (knee) are set to return to the squad.

Fellow forward Gary Hooper – who has not played a competitive match since Boxing Day 2017 – could also be included.

Midfielder Josh Onomah is still a couple of weeks away from fitness after an elbow injury.
