thumbnail Hello,

The Nigeria international forward, on loan from Chelsea for the season, is set to get his first taste of action for the Potters against Portsmouth in the League Cup

On-loan forward Victor Moses is primed to make his Stoke City debut in Wednesday's League Cup clash with Portsmouth.

Moses has yet to feature for the Potters since Chelsea confirmed earlier in August that he will spend 2014-15 at the Britannia Stadium but the 23-year-old will get the chance to press his claims for a first-team place in the second round.

And manager Mark Hughes has challenged the Nigeria international, who spent last season on loan at Liverpool, to make the most of the opportunity against the League Two side.

"[Moses] will start the game for us," Hughes told the press.

"It is important for him to get the shirt on and get out there because he hasn't had as much game time as he would have liked over the past 12 months.

"He is a very good footballer and somebody that we are very happy to have here.

"It is a win-win situation for us all, to be honest. I am sure that, if we can get him up to speed quickly, we will have a great player on our hands."
