Mark Hughes is hoping the back injury, which forced Ryan Shawcross off against Monaco on Saturday, is not serious.
The Stoke skipper, who has been plagued by ongoing problems in recent seasons, pulled up just before half-time in Martigny. "Ryan felt a twinge in his back when he turned and it's probably a bit of a consequence of the hard work this week and a coach journey as well," said manager Mark Hughes. "It's always right to err on the side of safety." Stoke were already without wantaway winger Marko Arnautovic and Phil Bardsley who were injured during the Potters first pre-season match and Hughes was able to provide an update following the 4-2 defeat: "Bardo is having a little bit of an issue with his back that he had on occasions last year. We're just trying to nip that in the bud." Meanwhile, Arnautovic, who has been the subject of a £20 million bid from West Ham "has an issue with the inside ligament of his knee [although] he should be fine next week." Jul 15 - 7:14 PM
