Santa delivers 3points for the Potters

Stoke produced an injury time comeback to bring Christmas cheer to the bet365 Stadium

Stoke from the off started well and took a deserved lead after 11 mins, James McClean gets the goal after taking the final touch from Joe Allen effort.

Stoke continued to dominate the first half, hunting in packs to win back possession, Sam Clucas should of been awarded a penalty for the second game in a row but the ref once again deemed to foul on him as not worthy of a penalty. Fans am sure started to get that De ja vu feeling as half time got close. Stoke for all their dominance were just the one goal ahead.

Second half started with Wednesday playing slightly better. They equalised from a corner as Bannan puts a ball into the near post for it to be flicked on to the back post where it goes in off the post. That was Wednesdays first attempt on goal.

Within 5 mins Stoke’s usual capitulation was complete as with Wednesday second attempt on goal they take the lead. Another corner which Bannan puts in, Butland makes a good Dave which he turns into the crossbar for it to rebound back to an unmarked Wednesday player to score.

Tyrese Campbell had only just entered the field as Wednesday scored and it was Tyrese who for Stoke back level in the 93rd minute as he turns a volley into the roof of the net to send the Boothen end wild.

The celebrations were only just subdued when Sam Vokes in the 97th minute gives the Stoke fans their Christmas wish and three points stay in the Potteries.

Injury times don’t get much better than that, let’s hope that is a turning point in our season now especially with other results in injury time going our way, lifting us out of the relegation zone.
