Their recent poor run of form has seen them fall to 11th place in the Premier League table, and the side need to get points on the board to avoid the possibility of falling into a relegation scrap.
West Bromwich Albion have reignited their challenge for a European place next season with three wins from their last four games.
They now sit just four points behind fifth place, and boss Steve Clarke will be hopeful of taking advantage of a Stoke side who are struggling for points.
Clarke is likely to retain the same starting lineup that edged out Swansea City last weekend.
Stoke City: DLWLLL
West Bromwich Albion: LLWWLW
Possible starting lineups
Stoke City: Begovic; Cameron, Wilson, Shawcross, Wilkinson; Shotton, Whelan, Nzonzi, Walters; Crouch, Jerome
West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Olsson, Ridgewell, McAuley, Jones; Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Dorrans, Mulumbu; Lukaku
Sports Mole says: 1-1
