Joe Allen is an early doubt for the trip to Manchester City after suffering a head injury.
The Wales midfielder was led from the field of play during last nights’ World Cup qualifying clash with Ireland at the Millenium Stadium and there are fears that Allen may have suffered concussion. Mark Bowen [Assistant Manager at Stoke] confirmed the 27-year-old was assessed by a doctor today but he wouldn’t be checked by the club until later this week: "He will come back in on Thursday and we will assess him then," he told the official club website. "There is protocol to follow with injuries of this nature, which we will of course follow." Allen could join captain Ryan Shawcross on the sidelines as he struggles to shake off an ongoing back problem, but there was better news regarding Bruno Martins Indi [groin] who should rejoin the group this week while Jese Rodriguez is already back in full training after missing the win over Southampton due to family reasons.
