Stoke City 3-3 Southampton
Coming from 3-1 down at HT Stoke showed their spirit again with a wonder strike from Cameron Jerome for the last minute equaliser. With Shawcross and Geoff Cameron serving one match bans we had starts for Ryan Shotton and Matthew Upson. We were not the best at the back with a Wilkinson own goal but we got a well deserved point. Man City on Tuesday and then Crystal Palace away in the third round of the FA Cup.
Transfer rumours hotting up with the Daily Mail reporting Shawcross to Man City; Michael Owen going Espanyol on loan is a Twitter rumour and Blackburn’s Martin Olsson is back on the Pulis radar.
