Stoke consider options for Bristol City clash after shock Carabao Cup win

Stoke manager Michael O’Neill could have a selection headache for his side’s Sky Bet Championship clash against Bristol City.

O’Neill made seven changes for the Carabao Cup tie against Premier League Wolves on Thursday and a number of players impressed as the Potters pulled off a shock win.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland and winger Tom Ince did not even make the bench, though, and their futures at the club appear uncertain.

Experienced defender Ryan Shawcross is continuing to build up his fitness after an injury-plagued past year while the visit of the Robins could come too soon for Joe Allen (Achilles) and Thibaud Verlinden (knee).

Bristol City could be without skipper Tomas Kalas.

The defender suffered a shoulder injury during the early stages of the midweek cup win over Northampton and was replaced by Taylor Moore.

Boss Dean Holden said: “We lost Tomas early in the game, which was not what we wanted, but you have to find the solutions to these problems. Tayls came on, he’s mentally ready and physically he handled himself well.”

Striker Chris Martin scored his first goal for the club in the 4-0 victory and should lead the line once again, while defender Alfie Mawson played 70 minutes on his first appearance.

    Robins rocking as they win at Stoke thanks to Nahki Wells and Andreas Weimann

    Bristol City maintained their perfect start to the Championship season with a comfortable 2-0 win at Stoke.

    Nahki Wells put them ahead two minutes into first-half stoppage time after he spun and turned a bouncing ball home.

    And the points were deservedly made safe when Andreas Weimann slotted home with a minute left after Stoke became stretched at the back.

    The Robins had dominated the first half with Chris Martin, Jack Hunt and Weimann all going close before the deadlock was broken.

    The visiting defence then had little difficulty in holding on to their lead with lacklustre Stoke offering nothing during a dour second half.

    The defeat leaves Stoke, who failed to register a shot on target all game, still looking for their first win of the campaign.

    Adam Davies spread himself to keep out Wells on four minutes after a terrible backpass by Sam Clucas.

    Weimann skied an effort four minutes later from close range after a Wells pass just fell behind him.

    Hunt sent a half-volley wide from 25 yards as the visitors continued to set the early pace.

    Jacob Brown failed to take advantage of time and space on the edge of the box when he fired over for the hosts on 19 minutes.

    Martin shot narrowly wide three minutes later following a lightning counter attack.

    Alfie Mawson conceded a corner with a last-ditch block as Brown prepared to tap a cross home on 30 mins.

    Nick Powell was inches away from finding an unmarked Brown after the visitors were caught napping by a quick throw six minutes later.

    Davies tipped over a powerful Weimann shot on 43 minutes, before Taylor Moore headed the resulting corner wide.

    But the pressure paid off in stoppage time when Wells spun inside the six-yard box and scored after Martin kept a deep cross alive.

    Sub Steven Fletcher just failed to get on the end of Morgan Fox’s teasing cross two minutes after the break.

    Davies comfortably gathered as Weimann was unable to control a Hunt cross during a scrappy start to the second half.

    Powell went into the book for a late foul on Tyreeq Bakinson as injuries continued to break up the flow.

    Bakinson had a low shot blocked for a corner on 73 minutes before Brown had a long-range effort charged down.

    Tommy Smith had an inswinging shot deflected behind for a corner on 84 minutes.

    But the game was made safe when Weimann calmly slotted under the keeper after Antoine Semenyo played him in following a two on one.
