Jonathan Walters: Has shaken off a groin complaint

Jonathan Walters: Has shaken off a groin complaint

Stoke forward Jon Walters has declared himself fit enough to play against West Brom after overcoming a groin complaint.

The Republic of Ireland international was in danger of seeing an impressive stretch of consecutive Premier League appearances come to an end, but he is now set to take that run on to 100.

Mark Hughes has no other injury or suspensions concerns to contend with.

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke hopes to have a largely injury-free squad at his disposal on Saturday.

All of his international players returned from the recent break without reporting any notable problems, with only Uruguayan defender Diego Lugano yet to return to be assessed.

Clarke, therefore, only has two definite absentees in the shape of goalkeeper Ben Foster (foot) and winger Scott Sinclair (hamstring). Matej Vydra, Victor Anichebe, Shane Long and Zoltan Gera are all available after recent injuries.
