Jack Butland has suffered yet another setback in training delaying his return until next month.
The England international broke his ankle in Germany seven months ago and has been working his way back to fitness ever since. After taking part in pre-season, his ankle flared up again in training and Butland went under the knife on the eve of the new campaign, surgery which was expected to side-line him for around two months. However, Stoke will have to wait until November before seeing the goalkeeper back in action: "It's a little bit of a setback, but he's been re-assured again and it's not one that will be a real issue," said Mark Hughes. "It just means that in terms of his recovery, he's lost a week or so. We want him back as soon as possible, but we're not going to take any risks with Jack." In-form Derby loanee Lee Grant will continue to deputise with veteran stopper Shay Given providing the back-up. Oct 15 - 11:05 AM
