Toothless Crouch is doubt for West Brom

Toothless Crouch is doubt for West Brom

Peter Crouch is a major doubt for Stoke City`s trip to local rivals West Bromwich Albion after facing dental surgery after losing several teeth against Newcastle United.

The beanpole striker lost two teeth and has another embedded in his jaw after a collision with Newcastle United captain Fabricio Collocini.

The incident occurred in the first half of the Potters 2-1 victory at the Britannia Stadium against Alan Pardew`s men.

The former England international, who has not scored since September, is likely to miss the trip to Hawthorns on the 1st December, and could also miss other games in the lead up to the busy Christmas period.

It is likely that Trinidad and Tobago striker Kenwyne Jones, who has not scored a Premier League goal since the opening day of the 2011/12 season, will deputise in the absence of the 31-year-old striker.
