Sunderland will be without Stephane Sessegnon for the rest of the campaign after the forward picked up a red card during the club's 6-1 defeat against Aston Villa last Monday.
Paolo Di Canio is also likely to be without Connor Wickham (calf), while both Steven Fletcher (ankle) and Lee Cattermole (knee) are long-term casualties.
For Stoke, Glenn Whelan and Andy Wilkinson are both expected to shake off knocks to start on Monday evening. Marc Wilson could be out for the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.
