Marc Wilson looks set to give his side a boost as he has returned to training in the wake of a groin injury that caused him to miss recent Premier League and FA Cup matches.
With Ryan Shawcross still injured and Geoff Cameron suspended, Mark Hughes will be happy to have Marc Wilson back in contention for a place as the Potters travel to Villa Park in Week 26 action. Hughes is deep at the center back position but that depth would have been tested if Wilson joined Shawcross and Cameron in being unavailable. Assuming he is fit, Wilson will likely partner Philip Wollscheid in the center of the defense. Feb 20 - 3:09 PM

Marc Wilson appears likely to join injured Ryan Shawcross on the sidelines for the visit of struggling Manchester City in Week 25.

It's a good thing that Mark Hughes has focused on building a deep squad at Stoke City with key players Ryan Shawcross, Marc Wilson and Bojan all missing for the Week 25 arrival of the defending champions. In years past, three key players missing would have signaled doom for a mid-table club like Stoke City but with depth in the form of Stephen Ireland to fill in for Bojan and Philipp Wollscheid, Marc Muniesa and Geoff Cameron to deputize at center back, Hughes should be in good shape. Would he rather have his first choice pairing? Sure. But his depth is solid enough to give the Potters a chance against struggling City.

Marc Wilson missed the match against Arsenal in Week 15 but should be ready to go again for Stoke City's Week 16 match at Selhurst Park.

Wilson has started consistently when healthy this season and it appears that he will be healthy again this week. The only question is where he stands now that Robert Huth is also healthy for the first time this season. Mark Hughes finds himself with solid depth in central defense that is unusual for a mid-table club with Ryan Shawcross, Huth, Wilson, Geoff Cameron, and Marc Muniesa all able to play centrally. Shawcross will certainly be starting but who partners him given all of the options remains to be seen.

Marc Wilson's recovery from a hamstring issue picked up against Spurs has not healed sufficiently for Mark Hughes to declare him likely to play against Burnley in Week 12.

With Burnley offering up light opposition at the Brittania in Week 12, there isn't a great deal of cause for Mark Hughes to try to rush Marc Wilson back from his injury. With Erik Pieters and Phil Bardsley both back to fitness, the Potters should be able to cover Wilson's spot comfortably. Some combination of Pieters, Bardsley, Cameron and Muniesa will join Ryan Shawcross in front of Asmir Begovic to face the Clarets.

Erik Pieters has joined Stoke City from PSV Eindhoven, becoming new manager Mark Hughes' first signing for the Potters.

Pieters is Holland's starting left-back and has played in the Champions League with PSV. He's had a terrible run of injuries, including months out when he punched a window after being sent off. If healthy he would likely supplant Marc Wilson on the left, and could be a good fantasy option in a normally secure Stoke defence. Only Stoke, however, could announce this signing by mentioning that he can cover in central defence.

Stoke hope to tie up Erik Pieters, Holland's first-choice left back, and make him Mark Hughes' first signing as manager.

Marc Wilson played well enough as the incumbent at the position, but Pieters arrival would surely unseat him in the Potters' defence. Wilson could cover on the right, where Stoke also need a new fullback.
