Aston Villa 1-4 Stoke City
What an away win! Only our second so far this season and the first time we have scored four goals away from home in a game in the Premier League. Amazing how well we did as the bench was sparse with Brek Shea, whose Stoke future is for from assured having hardly impressed and young midfielder Charlie Ward making his debut in the first team.
Despite going down one nil early on we were 3-1 up by half-time thanks to goals from Peter Odemwingie (making it four goals now in nine games), Peter Crouch and Steve N’Zonzi. No wonder some Villa fans were booking their players at half-time! Geoff Cameron made it 4-1 just at the end of the game.
Cracking performance throughout the team and this with four first team regulars out either through injury or suspension, plus Stephen Ireland not being allowed to play against his old club.
Hull City at home next…come on Stoke!
