Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "We got the job done but credit to Rochdale.

"In the first half we found it difficult. We had a great goal from Bojan which helped us and in the second half we got to grips with them and turned it around.

"At the weekend a lot of teams fell by the wayside and we weren't going to let that happen to us. We waned to make headlines for the right reasons and thankfully Rochdale haven't made the news.

"Bojan's injury, it is too early to know, he's going for a scan and hopefully it will be good news. Since he came to the club he has done things like that, we see it in training every day.

"We look forward to going to Blackburn now. We'll take a huge following there."

Rochdale boss Keith Hill: "We tried to attack with intent and press the opposition but they are an excellent side. The game is marginal no matter where you stand in the pyramid. Fair play to Stoke, they were worthy winners in the end. The Bojan goal was a great piece of skill but it didn't frighten us.

"The lads have done the club credit."

Rochdale 1-4 Stoke

Rochdale FC: "We hope you're all as proud of the players as we are. An excellent performance against Premier League opposition."

Ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson on BBC Radio 5 live

"Rochdale were not hammered at all. They played very well but they were undone by some top-class finishing.

"Stoke made sure. All four goals were clinically taken."

Player reaction

Rochdale 1-4 Stoke

Stoke forward Jon Walters: "It was always going to be tricky, but after the Bojan strike it was a professional game and we killed it.

"Before the game we knew what we needed to do. We did well in this competition a few years ago, but now we have Blackburn away and that's an interesting game.

"We are full of confidence and will take this into the league."

"Stoke named a really strong team tonight. As soon as you look around the dressing room as a Rochdale player you know what's coming. Rochdale were better than Stoke in the first half but Stoke scored three outstanding goals and that was the difference."

FULL-TIME

The scoreline flatters Stoke City but they have booked a fifth-round tie against Blackburn.

GOAL

Rochdale 1-4 Stoke - Jon Walters

Jon Walters

Stoke owe me a match fee. After calling Victor Moses to turn it on, my shout that Jon Walters would also get a goal also pays off. Marko Arnautovic beats the offside trap to chase a rare punt over the top, he squares it and Walters converts from close range.

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

THREE MINUTES added on. Stoke fans, you can start planning for that Ewood Park trip on the weekend of Valentine's Day. Lovely. Why not take someone special?

YELLOW CARD

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

Stephen Dawson is named man of the match at Spotland, the Dale midfielder has been his usual busy self throughout. Lawro thinks goalscorer Rhys Bennett has been the stand-out man, and as he says that Bennett is booked.

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

Free-kick for Rochdale. This needs to go in if they are to have any chance of forcing a replay.

In it comes, but Steve Sidwell and Glenn Whelan get it away.

"There are some heavy legs out there and the game is seriously stretched now."

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

Into the last five. Calvin Andrew wins a big header but the move breaks down.

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

From BBC Sport's Gary Rose at Spotland: "That goal has reinvigorated the home fans, with conversations near me having drifted towards Rochdale's next league opponents Coventry before Rhys Bennett struck.

"The Rochdale fans are roaring their side on now and, despite a two-goal cushion, it could still be an uncomfortable final few minutes for Stoke."

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

Rochdale left-back Scott Tanser bombs on and goes down - is that a foul? No, says referee Martin Atkinson. It was right in the same spot as the free-kick they scored from. Stoke have finished both halves poorly.

Ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson on BBC Radio 5 live

"Rochdale deserve that goal for their efforts and Rhys Bennett has been their best player. Very good."

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke

Right then, just over 10 minutes left of the FA Cup weekend. Can Rochdale, fifth in League One, cause another barnstormer?

"They're a little fortunate in the way that the chance came to them but then Rhys Bennett had a little look and placed it past the keeper.

"But I do feel that's too little, too late."

GOAL

Rochdale 1-3 Stoke - Rhys Bennett

Rhys Bennett
AFP

Start the Madness! No, literally. 'One Step Beyond' booms out at Spotland as a free-kick from the left is not dealt with, twice Stoke fail to clear and Rhys Bennett side-foots into the corner from eight yards out.

Stoke start with a mercurial genius up front from Barcelona and they can't defend set-pieces. What is going on eh?

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Dale have a free-kick 25 yards out, they roll it to Reuben Noble-Lazarus and he lashes in a drive which dips, dips, dips - but not quite enough and it's on to the roof of the net. Great effort.

YELLOW CARD

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Steve Sidwell is booked for a trip on the effervescent Stephen Dawson as Victor Moses comes off to strong applause. Well done Victor.

Charlie Adam is on. Another man who needs to raise it.

James in Twickenham: Wow, if you add the goals scored by our (Chelsea's) players loaned out, we finally have scored as many as Bradford!

CLOSE!

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Close! Jonny Walters gets on the end of a poor clearance from Olly Lancashire, he goes for the toe-poke into the far corner, and it's narrowly wide. Inches.

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

I'm going to go freelance as a sports psychologist. Give Steve Peters a run for his money.

Let's try it again - I reckon Jon Walters could get a goal...

Timothy de Graaf: If you ever need a motivational pep talk that gets results, give Tom Rostance a call! Inspired 15mins from Victor Moses. Tie over.

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

A very professional display from Stoke here. For the last 15 minutes of the first half they looked ragged but they have grabbed control of the match since the break. Victor Moses to the fore.

"Phil Bardsley is a proper right-back, he just loves a proper tackle."

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Victor Moses has had a few clubs but has found his form for Stoke tonight.

Can Dale get the best out of one of their man attackers, journeyman Calvin Andrew? The 28-year-old targetman has scored 16 league goals in 218 league games. He's never scored more than four for a club, and he's had 12 of them...

James: What a goal by Moses. Hope Dale don't concede many more cause they don't deserve it.

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Victor Moses

That is Victor Moses' second goal for Stoke and it should see them into the fifth round against Blackburn, where Mark Hughes will come up against one of his old clubs. Maybe they'll break the 6,000 mark for that one.

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke

Ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson on BBC Radio 5 live

"That goal came from a great first-time pass from Stephen Ireland which put Victor Moses in the clear. Nobody else in the ground could see that pass."

GOAL

Rochdale 0-3 Stoke - Victor Moses

Victor Moses

I've always said about Victor Moses - he's top class.

That is brilliant, running down the left, into the box, beats his man again and then swings a curling strike into the top corner from an acute angle.

Great goal. I take some credit for his turnaround after that earlier pep talk... (see 47 mins)

Rochdale 0-2 Stoke

Ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson on BBC Radio 5 live

"Marko Arnautovic is one of those who just doesn't do it often enough. That's very frustrating. It's worse if you know they can actually do it."

SUBSTITUTION

Rochdale 0-2 Stoke

And here he is. Reuben Noble-Lazarus is on in place of penalty taker Peter Vincenti. Can he bring Dale back from the dead?Stoke instead threaten as Marko Arnautovic whips in a cracking set-piece and Jon Walters flicks a header wide.
