STOKE v Everton: Mamady Sidibe returns with Asmir Begovic set for first start

Mamady Sidibe

Heading for start: Sidibe will hope to bring more goals to the Stoke attack

Striker Mamady Sidibe could return from a groin injury to face Everton in Stoke's final home match of the season against Everton.

The Malian has missed the last two matches but manager Tony Pulis is hopeful he will be back to boost a forward line which has scored just once in the last three matches.

Goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen will miss the remaining two league games after dislocating his elbow in last weekend's 7-0 drubbing at Chelsea, meaning Asmir Begovic will make his first start since joining from Portsmouth in January.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Huth, Abdoulaye Faye, Collins, Lawrence, Whelan, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington, Kitson, Fuller, Tuncay, Sidibe, Pugh, Wilkinson, Moult, Beattie, Parton.
