Stoke City injury update

After a lacklustre game against Bournemouth we really need to get back to basics for the Watford game. Whelan should be fit by the weekend, possibly on the bench? Bardsley went off injured and no date as yet on his likely return.

Better news with Butland due back early next month and Aflley has returned to training.

The club are looking to sign keeper Lee Grant in January as his current loan expires then. He has proved a real success since taking over from Shay Given.

Other transfer rumours include a possible bid for Port Vale’s defender Nathan Smith. Unlikely though as we don’t do much business with the Vale!

QPR 0-2 Stoke City

A nervy away win but a vital three points, that all but relegates QPR. Peter Crouch opened the scoring and Jonathan Walters got the second from the penalty spot. Sadly Marc Wilson went off injured with his hamstring again and may miss the Norwich game and beyond. Need another win/three points from the remaining four games – come on Stoke!

Elsewhere Port Vale got promoted, well done to them and they will need to keep hold of Tom Pope & hope he can score at a higher level. Brentford may also be going up in a very tight finish in Division One, a play-off place is guaranteed.

Sad to hear of the passing of former player Paul Ware. Enjoyed watching him playing and he thrived in the Lou Macari years. Sad loss and only 42, no age at all. RIP
