This penultimate match of the season has been postponed several times since it was originally planned due to the Cottagers' impressive progression to the Europa League final.
Stoke fans will be hoping that the Fulham players will be concentrating on the bigger challenge of Atletico Madrid in Hamburg next week and that we can come away with all three points ahead of the difficult visit to Old Trafford for the final match on Sunday.
Leading goalscorer, Bobby Zamora is still nursing an achilles injury that saw him miss out in their 3-2 win over their London rivals West Ham.
The former Baggie is Fulham's second highest goalscorer after Zamora and likely to return after being rested at the weekend.
Stoke will have been buoyed by a good bounce-back from the Chelsea debacle in their goalless draw against Everton and Tony Pulis can name the same side that started on Saturday - if he chooses to leave David Kitson and James Beattie behind. Asmir Begovic is set to make his second start with Thomas Sorensen injured.
It was just like the old days on Saturday with Mamady Sidibe and Ricardo Fuller linking up well at the front - we just need a goal or two from Ric to end the season on a high.
Peter Walton. His first time in charge of a Stoke match since THAT match against Arsenal and Ramsey's horrific injury.
Sunday 9th May: Man United (away) kick-off: 4pm * LIVE ON SKY
