Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has some defensive worries ahead of this weekend's clash with Fulham.
Both Andy Wilkinson and Danny Higginbotham are in doubt, leaving a gaping hole in the Potters defensive structure.
Wilkinson is being troubled with a bruised back as well as internal bleeding whilst Higginbotham has had to have scans on a back injury.
"The pair of them are a big worry ahead of the Fulham game on Saturday," Pulis said in the Sentinel.
"That could mean a couple of new faces coming into the frame.
"Both Andy and Danny have been doing well this year, as everyone would agree, but we're fortunate in that we have plenty of experienced back-up to call upon.
"We'll have to weigh up things carefully because we obviously don't want to risk those who could be heavily involved at Fulham."
