Wilson Palacios is ready to kick-start his Stoke career on Saturday.

The ex-Tottenham midfielder has only managed 38 minutes of Premier League football for The Potters since his £6 million switch in the summer - all of which have came from the bench.

When Palacios joined Stoke he was recovering from a serious knee injury, but has now declared himself fit to play in a plea to Tony Pulis.

"I am 100 per cent fit and at the manager's disposal, but it is up to Tony Pulis to put me in the team," said Palacios.

"I am happy at Stoke. I came here with a bad injury, but now I'm ready to play."

The Honduras international has since made seven appearances for the Potters this season, in the Carling Cup and Europa League respectively, but is pushing for a place in the side for this weekend's clash with Blackburn.

Acknowledging it will not be easy to seal a place, the midfielder said: "The players at Stoke are very good, so I have to fight for my place."

Stoke look to end a run of four successive Premier League defeats when they host Blackburn at the Britannia Stadium.
