Victor Moses should be in training when Stoke’s first-team squad reports back from a mini two-day break this morning.
Moses has been out with a thigh injury since November 22 was forced to return to parent club Chelsea for treatment.
“He’s ready to start training now, so we expect him to be in the training ground,” said assistant boss Mark Bowen.
“We will have to assess how far down the line he is as to whether he’s on the bench or starting games.
“We have come through a brutal period of games and done very well.
“But we have missed Victor and Peter Odemwingie, two key attacking players.”
