Stoke boss Mark Hughes will once again ring the changes in the Capital One Cup as the club travel to League One outfit Tranmere.
Hughes made eight adjustments to his starting line-up for the second-round home 3-1 victory over third-tier Walsall and there looks set to be another considerable reshuffle from Sunday's Premier League defeat at Arsenal.
Striker Kenwyne Jones scored a hat-trick in the Walsall game after being promoted to the first XI for it and, having also started all three of Stoke's matches since, may be rested on this occasion.
