There's the half-time whistle, 1-0 to the Potters.
Wilson with a great low through ball from defence to attack. Adam is threaded through down the left wing and crosses early for Jones. He's marked by two men though and stuggles to get to the ball, before Schmeichel gathers
Pieters with a neat bit of skill on the left flank, but its cut out by a defender. It drops out of play and it should be a corner but Lee Probert awards a goal kick!
Applause from the supporters though, they can see Stoke are searching for that second
A superb passing move around the pitch culminates in a cross into the box for Jones. He's leaning back trying to connect though and can only head the ball over

10 minutes to go, come on Stoke!
Pieters clears a ball into the back post area after the bounce illudes Assaidi and it looks as though Coleman could have room to shoot
Barry is then very late on Cameron but the referee doesn't give anything at all
Howard is then forced to punch another cross, this time from Pennant out of the box with Crouch looming
Crouch cannot head the ball with power, so he brings it down superbly well and sidesteps his man but is crowded out by three defenders in the end
Assaidi is fouled by Coleman but he battles past it and crosses into the box
Mark Hughes are brought on Jermaine Pennant in an attempt to take the game to them and not just sit back
Just under 14 minutes remaining here. It's nervous stuff, can the Potters hold out
Butland does well to smother Pienaar's run into the area on the left
