And Fabricio Coloccini has also been back on the training field after suffering a calf knock during the club’s trip to La Manga.

Both Colback and Dummett have recovered from knocks and have trained ahead of the encounter with Stoke City.

McClaren left both Colback and Dummett out of the team that beat Lillestrom SK 2-1 in Spain.

However, both players were merely rested as a precaution, with Dummett’s hamstring not risked and Colback left
out after picking up a knock during a training session.

Dummett and Colback’s presence give him options at left-back with the Wales international likely to return.

McClaren has fielded Rolando Aarons out of position in the last
two Premier League games, but the winger looked much more at home in his natural position out wide against Lillestrom and scored the winning goal.

McClaren is eager to improve the club’s awful away form, with just two wins on the road this season.

He said: “We have been disappointing, especially at Everton and Chelsea. Once we have had a setback, we haven’t recovered from that.

“We have to deal with that.

“We just have to maintain our home form and somehow improve our away form.”
