Stoke Saved By The (Camp)bell
A late Tyrese Campbell winner ensured Stoke City limped past Sporting Khalsa on Tuesday.
Campbell capitalised on an error to setup a tie with Hanley Town in the next round of the Staffordshire Senior Cup.
It was cruel on the home side who had been well marshalled throughout by captain Tes Robinson.
Robinson and his backline didn’t give Julien Ngoy a sniff all evening but Campbell, the son of former Everton striker Kevin, displayed his father’s finishing instinct to send Stoke through.
16 year-old Campbell recently signed from Manchester City and although his goal came in the 88th minute there was still time for Sporting Khalsa to almost force the game to penalties.
Stoke were indebted to goalkeeper Daniel Gyolli, who superbly tipped a rasping effort onto the post to ensure a penalty lottery was avoided.
The next round is pencilled in to take place on 6 December.
