We've also just been informed that Friday's Under-21s fixture against Southampton at Nantwich will now kick off at 2.00pm and not 1.00pm as originally stated.
Report and reaction to follow on stokecityfc.com - post match videos to come on Stoke City Player
The result moves the Potters up to twelfth in the table
It was a great second half to watch that. It seemed as though our chance might be over after Schurrle's quick-fire equaliser after Ireland put us 2-1 up, but Assaidi netted to earn all three points for the Potters
and there it is! Full-time, and Stoke run out winners. 3-2 the final score. What a winning goal too.
Whistles all round the stadium, the fans hoping and praying for that full-time whistle
Nzonzi gets back well to block Ivanovic's cross into the box. Begovic then rushes out to claim and stop it from running out for a corner
What an atmosphere inside the Britannia Stadium here, this is electric stuff
These final five minutes are going to seem like an eternity! Come on Stoke, hang in there!
Five minutes of added time here! As Assaidi is also cautioned for ripping off him shirt in celebration
He gets the ball from Ireland, cuts inside Ivanovic and fires it into the net! Cech no chance!
And Stoke the lead!! Assaidi with an unbelievable strike!!
Crouch does superbly well to win a throw by the corner flag from Terry. He had no support whatsoever there
Two and a half minutes remaining here. Cameron and Palacios both do well in stopping a weaving run from Eden Hazard there
Second Stoke sub, Palacios on for Whelan with 4 minutes remaining
Terry then booked after getting involved following a scuffle between Arnautovic and Azpilicueta
Walters replaced straight away by Assaidi. Just over 6 minutes to play, plus stoppages. That was Walters' fifth booking by the way, so he'll miss the trip one of his former clubs Hull next weekend
Walters booked after pushing the smirking Terry. He escapes without even a caution there!
Boos and Terry heads out wide to flatten Walters after Begovic kicks it out to build a Stoke attack
Lampard fires it low and hard, but Begovic makes the save! Cheers all around. Phew!
Lampard or Mata? This is a nervy moment. Normally they are very dangerous from positions like this
Muniesa brings down Ba just on the edge of the area, centre of goal, after passes from Lampard and Hazard
