Check in to Stoke City vs West Ham United

Preview

West Ham travel to the Britannia Stadium without their captain, Kevin Nolan, out with a toe injury sustained in Monday’s meeting with Tottenham. Both mid-table clubs will be hungry for a win, having lost their most recent engagements while the Stoke manager, Tony Pullis, has been talking down grumblings from supporters, claiming the club are busy putting in place an “infrastructure” while remaining in the Premier League. The hosts’ defence will have to manage without Robert Huth, who was given a retrospective three-match ban after elbowing Fulham’s Philippe Senderos. Henry Bodkin
