Peter Crouch was subbed off shortly before half time during the win over Newcastle in midweek with a knock to his head, and it is as of yet unclear whether he will be fit to play.
Kenwyne Jones and Cameron Jerome will be waiting in the wings if Crouch does not make it.
Otherwise Tony Pulis will field an unchanged starting XI with Shotton and Cameron at full back with Wilkinson and Wilson still out.
After winning 4 matches in a row to take them up to third in the table, West Brom were thoroughly outplayed at the Liberty Stadium by an on-form Swansea side. They are still 4th but it remains to be seen how long they can stay in the top 4 with the competition really starting to hot up and many suggesting they won't be there for long.
Back on home soil the Baggies will be favourites, particularly against a Stoke side that have not yet won away from home and have only netted 6 times in 7 away games.
Stoke have won 4 of their last 5 games at the Hawthorns, but the tides are turned this season in terms of West Brom being the higher placed side in the table. They are playing the better football and look set to extend their impressive home run of 6 wins from 7 games.
