Given the amount of changes that he made to his squad during January, no-one can accuse Stoke City boss Michael O’Neill of being afraid to show a ruthless streak at the bet365 Stadium.
With six defeats coming in 10 Championship matches, there can be no complaints either, and O’Neill will be hopeful that a number of fresh faces will reignite a playoff push.
At one stage, the Potters were well placed in the top six, but they suddenly find themselves down in 14th position with no more than two matches in hand on some of their rivals.
On the plus side, Stoke were able to progress through to the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, Josh Maja and Jacob Brown getting on the scoresheet during a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic.
Despite their opponents being a league below, Stoke ended Wigan’s 20-game unbeaten streak, so confidence should be taken from that achievement.
Lewis Baker and Jaden Philogene-Bidace are in line to return to the Stoke starting lineup after being cup-tied at the weekend.
Nick Powell may take the spot of Mario Vrancic, while Maja could start ahead of Steven Fletcher in attack.
However, the new arrival may have to wait his turn with Brown having scored in his last two fixtures.
With Swansea having gone all-out attack against Blackburn, Martin may choose to be more conservative on away territory.
Ryan Bennett should return in place of the suspended Ryan Manning, while one of Jay Fulton or Korey Smith could get the nod over one of the offensive players.
