No New Concerns Ahead Of Palace Date

Geoff Cameron

MARK HUGHES has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s trip to the capital to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Potters will again be without Geoff Cameron and Jack Butland as they prepare for a second road trip in six days, but the manager has revealed they picked up no new setbacks on the fitness front in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Brighton.

Cameron has missed the last three games after suffering a concussion in training but Hughes insists he’s well on the road to recovery.

Speaking exclusively to Stoke City+ Hughes said: “We’re pretty much ok as we get ready for Palace – we’re in reasonably good shape.

“Geoff is stepping up his work, which is good news. He won’t be available for the Palace game because he’s missed a number of weeks.

“But he’s progressing well and we’re hoping he will get back into the playing group next week and then he’s an extra body for us.”

Butland, meanwhile, is still nursing the broken finger he picked up while away on England duty during the last international break which means current ‘Player of the Year’ Lee Grant will again deputise for him against Palace.

Hughes added: “It’s pretty straightforward with Jack. We’ve just got to give it the time it needs and once he can get the gloves on and get out working he should be back very, very quickly.”

The Potters return to action at the bet365 Stadium next Wednesday against Liverpool. Tickets are still available – visit the Ticket Office, visit scfcdirect.com/events or call on (01782) 367599.
