Stoke will be missing Robert Huth in the Barclays Premier League home clash with West Ham as the centre-back begins the three-match suspension handed to him earlier this week by the Football Association.

Robert Huth: Suspended
Robert Huth: Suspended

Huth will serve the ban after accepting a violent conduct charge from the FA relating to an incident in last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Fulham, where he caught Philippe Senderos in the face with his forearm. Either Marc Wilson or Geoff Cameron, both of whom usually play at full-back for the Potters, is set to cover in the middle of defence alongside skipper Ryan Shawcross.

Midfielder Steven Nzonzi will be wearing a protective face mask if he features having broken his nose in the match at Craven Cottage, while winger Matthew Etherington (back) and striker Michael Owen (thigh) will undergo late fitness tests.

West Ham captain Kevin Nolan is out with a broken toe.

A foot injury was exacerbated in Monday's 3-2 loss to Tottenham and West Ham hope his absence will be temporary, while his fellow midfielder Mark Noble is doubtful with an arm problem which saw him miss the Spurs loss.

Guy Demel is fit despite going off in the latter stages of the loss to Tottenham, while George McCartney (knee) is continuing his comeback and is unlikely to feature.
