Robert Huth serves the second of a three-match ban when Stoke travel to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.
The German central defender was banned for violent conduct after the Football Association took retrospective action following an incident in the recent 1-0 defeat at Fulham, where he caught Philippe Senderos in the face with his forearm.
Marc Wilson is the man who will no doubt replace him again in the centre of defence, while Steven N'Zonzi will continue to play on after breaking his nose in the same game at Craven Cottage a fortnight ago.
However Potters boss Tony Pulis has no new injury worries to contend with as the side bids to improve on a record of just two wins from 11 matches since the start of the year.
