Martin Smith: Ryan Shawcross's absence more of a worry for Stoke...

I WAS really looking forward to last weekend's trip to Burton Albion, but left the Pirelli Stadium feeling more than just a bit deflated after that 3-0 defeat.Obviously, it would be ridiculous to attach too much importance to the result when we were well below strength and coming into the fixture off the back of just eight days of training.Nevertheless it was a little disappointing to see Stoke City lose that way.You always want to see the team do well and to see encouraging early signs, but...

MARK Hughes says Stoke City will not take any risks with Ryan Shawcross's back – but insists there is nothing to be concerned about over his long-term fitness. Shawcross sat out of Stoke's opening pre-season game at Burton Albion after tweaking his back when he fell awkwardly in training. The 28-year-old is expected to be fit for the second game, at Preston on Saturday, and Hughes does not want fans to start panicking about the captain. Shawcross needed back surgery this time last...

THERE has never been an exact science for the perfect pre-season. But no matter how he goes about it, priority number one for Mark Hughes this summer is to get and keep his players fit and ready for a full campaign. There can be no getting away from the fact that the huge number of injuries Stoke City suffered last season had an affect on the team. They need everyone firing in the squad because any success will be achieved collectively. There are a couple of key men in particular of...

STOKE City's players' player of the year Marko Arnautovic has always been a man of many haircuts – but it was still a surprise to see him go blonde while on holiday. Last season's top scorer looked more Ally Pickering than Brek Shea when he was papped relaxing as he prepares for the new campaign. It prompted Stoke fan Elliot Hackney to vow on Twitter that he would dye his hair in solidarity if he received 100 re-Tweets. Read more: Stoke City: Ryan Shawcross should be fit to...

STOKE were badly beaten her at Burton in their first pre-season outing and it didn't make for pretty viewing in all honesty.They were the better side first half and could have been 2-0 up after chances for Joselu and Philipp Wollscheid.But Burton, after making 10 changes at the break, cashed in on a Jakob Haugaard error as Chris O'Grady grabbed the first of two.Stoke, with Ryan Shawcross absent with a minor back injury, had a young outfit on the pitch by the time Lucas Akins added a third...

England inquest: Stoke City fans had it in for Roy Hodgson...

ROY Hodgson, who has fallen on his sword after a shock defeat to Iceland, was never a popular England manager among Stoke City fans. He did win friends and gain new respect when he was guest of honour at a fundraiser for the Stanley Matthews Foundation earlier this year. But his constant overlooking of Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross at a time when there was a dearth of quality, experienced English centre-backs and leaders in the Premier League was a source of frustration. So too were his...
