Stoke City 2-1 Swansea City
Begovic; Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Nzonzi, Adam, Diouf, Ireland, Moses; Crouch
Subs: Sorensen, Muniesa, Walters, Cameron, Sidwell, Assaidi, Bojan
A good win for us after a fairly lethargic first half performance which saw Shawcross give away a penalty for shirt tugging. To be fair he has been heading for a booking all season for this! Mind you other players in other teams do this week in, week out too. Charlie Adam got the equaliser from the penalty spot after Victor Moses was fouled in the box (Swansea manager Gary Monk accused Moses of diving after the match). Super Jon Walters bagged the winner and a deserved three points for us. Good to see Geoff Cameron in midfield in the second half and he had a great game.
Few injury concerns ahead of next week’s game away at Southampton including Moses, Arnie and Bardsley – hopefully Whelan will be back.
