TONY PULIS named an unchanged line-up as Stoke City went in search of their first Barclays Premier League win of the season against Swansea City.
With recent-signing Charlie Adam having shrugged off the bout of illness which forced him off in last weekend’s defeat at Chelsea, the Scottish international took his place in the same side which had come so close to claiming a point at Stamford Bridge.
The only change made by Pulis was on the bench where American international Maurice Edu was included at the expense of Ryan Shotton.
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup was boosted by the fact that both Chico Flores and Nathan Dyer were back from suspension, while Pablo Hernandez had recovered from a knee injury to take his place in the starting line-up.
Stoke City: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross, Huth, Wilson; Walters, Whelan, N’Zonzi, Adam, Kightly; Crouch. Subs: Sorensen, Jones, Owen, Edu, Whitehead, Upson, Etherington
Swansea City: Vorm; Angel, Williams, Flores, Davies; Dyer, Britton, Michu, Sung-Yueng, Hernandez; Graham. Subs: Tremmel, Monk, Shechter, De Guzman, Routledge, Tiendalli, Moore.
Referee: J. Moss
