Stoke are waiting on whether Jermaine Pennant and Andy Wilkinson will be fit to face Wigan after picking up knocks against Man City.

Stoke: Pulis hands pair late fitness tests

Wilkinson has been struggling recently with a knee injury and was taken off during the 1-1 draw with City in order not to make the problem worse as manager Tony Pulis looks to establish a settled side.

This means he will have to undergo a late fitness test, as will Jermaine Pennant who picked up a hamstring problem in the same game and came off for Tuncay.
Stoke will definitely be without Marc Wilson for the trip to the DW Stadium as he serves a one-match ban for picking up his fifth booking of the season last week.
