Stoke City inflicted the first defeat of the season on West Brom is one of the upset football scores of Championship weekend. The hosts were the dominant side for the majority of the game and missed quite a few chances to take the lead. Jacob Brown hit the post for the Potters before an own goal was ruled out by VAR after a foul on the weekend. They finally took their chance when Nick Powell got at the end of a pass from Tommy Smith and finished over the goalkeeper. The win took Stoke to third place while West Brom stay on top of the table.
Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: “We made it hard for ourselves. We had two really good chances in the first half and when the game is a 0-0, it is always finely poised. In the second half, we were by far the most dominant team and it was a brilliant finish from Nick.” he added. “We should have been ahead in the game, there’s no doubt about that, but I think we showed good character, given what happened, that we believed we could still go on and win. We deserved the three points.”
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “I think Stoke deserved to win tonight. It was not enough – it is as simple as that. I don’t know if it was tiredness from the trip to Cardiff, but we made too many mistakes and didn’t keep the ball in the pocket like Tuesday.”
