Boost for Stoke
Boost for Stoke as James McClean is expected to be back for Blackburn game
The past three games have shown us that McCleans direct running and pace is needed if we are to get anything out of a game.
His suspension for the Cardiff game highlighted the clubs lack of width and pace, something that will need to be addressed in the January window.
McClean got a slight knock v Wigan at the end of the game which resulted in him offering on all the Wigan players from how it looked.
That knock to the knee required stitches but it is not expected to keep him out of the next game.
