Crawley Town v Stoke City: Latest FA Cup team news

Have your say

Stoke boss Tony Pulis will make changes to the side beaten 1-0 by Valencia in the Europa League last night for Sunday’s FA Cup fifth-round trip to Crawley.

Matthew Upson could be involved after serving a European ban, while fellow centre-back Robert Huth will sit out the second of his three-match domestic suspension, but goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is likely to keep his place.

Pulis must check on the fitness of midfielder Dean Whitehead after he sustained a nasty gash to his leg in a challenge with Tino Costa that the Potters boss felt should have produced a red card.

Provisional squad: Sorensen, Begovic, Upson, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Wilson, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Etherington, Crouch, Walters, Shotton, Diao, Jones, Whitehead, Whelan, Woodgate, Fuller, Jerome, Collins, Arismendi.
