The odd goal decided an even game as Stoke City won 3-2 (2-1) at home to Reading in the Championship on Saturday.
There was no real shape to the match until Stoke City took the lead just before the half-hour mark through Nick Powell, who scored, making it 1-0.
The team increased the lead to 2-0 after almost half an hour’s play as Jacob Brown scored.
Right after this, it was John Swift who scored ensuring that Reading reduced the score to 2-1.
With 30 minutes on the clock, Reading’s Liam Moor scored and equalised.
With five minutes left to play, Stoke City’s Sam Surridge scored the decider as he scored. The 3-2 goal was the last one of the game.
Next time Stoke City will play against Fulham on Saturday. Reading take on Bristol City at home on Tuesday.
