  • Joe Allen will miss Stoke's trip to Manchester City due to the concussion he suffered while on international duty with Wales.The 27-year-old midfielder took a blow to the head having been caught between David Meyler and James McClean during the Republic of Ireland's victory in Cardiff on Monday that dashed Wales' World Cup hopes.Hughes revealed Allen had little recollection of the incident and would be missing at the Etihad Stadium because he was not far enough along in the concussion protocol process."Joe's not great; we've given him a couple of days just to stay at home," Hughes said."He came in yesterday (Thursday), felt a lot better, but I think the reality is he's unlikely to be available unfortunately."Clearly concussion's a thing you can't take any risk with, we've got to follow the protocol.

  • Crouch grabs winner for Stoke as Berahino drought goes onStoke substitute Peter Crouch spared Saido Berahino's blushes as he came off the bench to register the winner against old club Southampton.Having led through Mame Diouf's header, Berahino then had a penalty to end a goalless streak that dates back to February 2016, but he missed his fourth successive spot-kick during that drought as Fraser Forster kept it out.It looked like it would prove costly when Maya Yoshida headed in a 75th-minute equaliser, yet Crouch, who came on for Berahino, poked in the winner from close range to make it 2-1 and earn the Potters their first win in six.Berahino had been praised by his manager Mark Hughes on Friday and he was handed a recall for a Stoke side missing Jese Rodriguez through compassionate leave.There was also a first start of the season for Southampton's Virgil van Dijk after the Liverpool target was denied a summer move away.The Dutchman last started in January, with a..
