Stoke City at Fulham team news: Marc Wilson in, Michael Owen out, Brek Shea on the bench?
TONY Pulis today dropped a heavy hint that Marc Wilson will return from his broken leg at Fulham on Saturday.
But it looks like American international Brek Shea will have to wait a while yet for his full English debut.
Wilson is hoping for his first appearance since breaking his leg against Sunderland last October.
"We are desperate to get Marc playing again and he needs to play," said Pulis today.

"He's strolled through rehab, but now he's on the launch pad ready to go.
"I think Brek has had nearly three or four months out with injury and so this is like a pre-season for him. He's a fit lad, but whether we start with him or not on Saturday remains to be seen."
Pulis also revealed that Michael Owen could be sidelined at Fulham after feeling his thigh in training on Tuesday.
But there is better news of Cameron Jerome after he reported fit following a slight knee problem during Monday's behind-closed-doors friendly against Scunthorpe.
