Marc Wilson was held out for a second week against Spurs but Week 3 could see him return to active duty as the Potters travel to Carrow Road.
Even minus captain Ryan Shawcross, Stoke City are fairly deep in the center back department with Wilson, Wollscheid, Cameron, and Muniesa all available to play in that spot. Whether Wilson is inserted into the starting line-up now that he is healthy again is a solid question. Mark Hughes has never seemed to be in love with the idea of Geoff Cameron as a center back so Wilson may jump into the spot the US international manned against Spurs last weekend. Aug 21 - 1:50 PM

Marc Wilson missed the Week 1 loss to Liverpool but should be ready to participate against Spurs at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

The versatile defender will still have to fight for a spot in the central defense with Philipp Wollscheid, Marc Muniesa, and Geoff Cameron all available as well. Given Mark Hughes' apparent goal of turning the Potters into Barcelona B, you'd think that Muniesa will start regularly so it may be Wilson, Wollscheid and Cameron competing for the other spot until Ryan Shawcross returns in late September or early October. Given the opponent, venue and uncertainty, Wilson is probably not a viable fantasy option.

Marc Wilson is doubtful for Sunday's opener against Liverpool with an ankle issue.

With Ryan Shawcross out for a significant spell with an ankle injury, Mark Hughes will be a little concerned that he may also be missing Marc Wilson for the visit of Liverpool on Sunday. Marc Muniesa and Philipp Wollscheid are the likely starters so the Potters aren't in a dire situation but with all the depth they've accumulated they'd certainly prefer to have their choice of center backs against the Reds who will be sporting what they hope is a revitalized attack.

Marc Wilson was shown his second yellow card in the 84th minute which effectively ended the tie as the Potter dropped a 2-0 decision at the Liberty Stadium.

Tony Pulis would be horrified to realize that this was the first time all season that Stoke City have gone down to 10 men. Marc Wilson's 84th minute yellow card, his second of the match, saw Swansea gain a man advantage. They took advantage in stoppage time to double their lead as Stoke City continued to press for an equalizer. The loss didn't mean much to the Potters' season but it does put them at risk of falling out of the top half with Everton still only three points behind them in 11th.

Marc Wilson is doubtful for Stoke City's match with Southampton as he recovers from a hip injury picked up against West Ham last weekend.

Marc Wilson has had a rough 2015 so far with injuries and it may well continue in Week 33 after he picked up a hip injury against West Ham last weekend. With Wilson potentially out, Erik Pieters is likely to return to the starting line-up. With Southampton a strong opponent neither Wilson nor Pieters has a ton of value and even less so given the uncertainty between the two.

Mark Hughes is expecting to be able to call upon the services of Marc Wilson after a hip injury forced the defender off at West Ham in GW32.

Wilson "took a bang to the hip" restricting his movement at Upton Park during last weekends’ draw but after further tests the injury has responded well to treatment and Hughes will be looking to include the Northern Ireland international in the squad that takes on Southampton - Phil Bardsley and Erik Pieters remain on standby should Wilson suffer any minute problems. However Stoke will need to make at least one change with the news that Victor Moses returned to parent club Chelsea for treatment following a hamstring strain; Mark Hughes admits the winger is unlikely to play again this season. Mame Biram Diouf is a prime candidate for his place in the eleven. Peter Odemwingie [ruptured ACL] has started training and the striker will target game time within the next month.

Marc Wilson is available for Stoke City despite breaking his hand in the Potters' 2-1 loss to Chelsea last weekend.

Mark Hughes has most of his defense back and healthy so if Marc Wilson's hand is giving him trouble, Hughes can elect to start him on the bench. If the hand isn't a problem then you'd expect the versatile Irishman to continue to start somewhere in the Stoke City defense. With struggling West Ham this week's opponent any Stoke City defender is at least worth consideration.

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.

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.
Feb 10 - 9:20 AM

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.
