Stoke forced to shuffle defence v Saints

Stoke City will be forced to change their defence when they host Premier League strugglers Southampton on Saturday as captain Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron serve one-match bans.

The pair both received their fifth bookings of the season during Stoke's 3-1 win over Liverpool on Wednesday and are expected to be replaced by Matthew Upson and Ryan Shotton.

Stoke, eighth in the table, have not lost in the league since a 1-0 defeat to Norwich City on November 3.

Southampton are one point clear of the relegation zone following their 1-1 draw against Fulham in midweek thanks to Ricky Lambert's late penalty.
