Powell in good nick for a Potters return

Nick Powell is set to return to contention for Stoke as they bid to secure a first Sky Bet Championship win of the season at home to Bristol City.

Powell, a summer arrival from Wigan, has not featured for the struggling Potters since picking up a knock on the opening day against QPR.

Defender Nathan Collins could also be back after missing the defeat at Birmingham last time out, and manager Nathan Jones may recall goalkeeper Jack Butland, who has sat out the last two league matches due to poor form and a minor knock.

Defender Ryan Shawcross remains a long-term absentee.

Benik Afobe drops out for Bristol City, with the striker unable to play against his parent club.

Famara Diedhiou has scored two goals in three games against the Potters and could replace Afobe.

Hungary midfielder Adam Nagy has added to City’s injury worries by damaging an ankle while on international duty.

Tomas Kalas (hamstring), Bailey Wright (thigh), Jay DaSilva (tibia) and Korey Smith (foot) are already facing lengthy spells on the sidelines.
