Match of the Week – Brentford v Stoke City

Posted in Championship, Football, Match of the Week, Stoke City, Stoke City FC with tags , , , , , , , on January 11, 2019 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

After last week’s lucky draw for Stoke away at Shrewsbury, Gary Rowett has been sacked and now we have a new manager Nathan Jones from Luton Town. He promises attacking football and has done well at Luton taking them up from League Two into current a play-off position in League One. Exciting and interesting times at Stoke for sure.

Brentford have drawn their last three games and have fallen away since their previous manager Dean Smith joined Aston Villa. Should be a good game, with Ryan Woods set to start against his old club and possibly a return to the squad for Bojan and Moritz Baeur? Tyrese Campbell must also be in with a shout of at least making the bench. Be interesting to see how the defence lines-up, with Martins Indi getting the nod ahead of Williams?

What a fantastic result and end to the current season 🙂

The goalscorers were Mama Diouf (2), Jon Walters, Charlie Adam, Peter Crouch and Steven N’Zonzi.

Some interesting records broken today:

Steven Gerrard has never lost a Premier League game by more than four goals.

Stoke are the first team to score five goals vs Liverpool in a league game since Coventry in December 1992.

This is Liverpool’s heaviest defeat since the 1950’s.

Stoke last scored more than five goals in a league game back in 1982.

Peter Crouch, with his goal today, became the leading all time scorer from headers in the Premier League.

Stoke’s highest ever win in the Premiership.

* Stoke City will play Brentford in a pre-season friendly on Saturday July 25th.

QPR 0-2 Stoke City

A nervy away win but a vital three points, that all but relegates QPR. Peter Crouch opened the scoring and Jonathan Walters got the second from the penalty spot. Sadly Marc Wilson went off injured with his hamstring again and may miss the Norwich game and beyond. Need another win/three points from the remaining four games – come on Stoke!

Elsewhere Port Vale got promoted, well done to them and they will need to keep hold of Tom Pope & hope he can score at a higher level. Brentford may also be going up in a very tight finish in Division One, a play-off place is guaranteed.

Sad to hear of the passing of former player Paul Ware. Enjoyed watching him playing and he thrived in the Lou Macari years. Sad loss and only 42, no age at all. RIP
