Gudjohnsen likely to make first start

Gudjohnsen likely to make first start

Icelandic striker Eidur Gudjohnsen is set to make his first start for the club since his move from Monaco. Gudjohnsen is likely to start in tomorrow nights Carling Cup 4th round tie at West Ham as the Potters bid to reach the Quarters for the second time in 3 years.

Since signing on Deadline day Gudjohnsen hasn`t hit the ground running as fitness problems have prevented him from playing any major part. But a goal in a reserve game last week and 15 minutes against Manchester United and Bolton in recent games, should see Pulis give him the green light. Fans will be excited see Eidur get some game time under his belt as he nears a League start.

Tuncay, Danny Higginbotham, Glenn Whelan, Asmir Begovic, Andy Wilkinson and Dean Whitehead are all expected to return to the team for tomorrow nights game. Marc Wilson is cup tied and Ricardo Fuller may feature after a shoulder injury. Kenwyne Jones, Abdoulaye Faye and Jonathan Walters may be rested.
