  1. FULL-TIME - Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    That's all folks. More reaction here. 

  2. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    The ball has barely been out of Bournemouth's half during this six minutes extra time... 

    Charlie Adam picks up a yellow card for a cynical foul on Gosling born out of pure frustration. 

  3. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    A scramble of short passes and shots inside the penalty area panic Bournemouth's defence but Stoke can't find the net.

    Can they steal a point in the dying seconds? 

  4. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Ooofff just as I say that, Bournemouth are looking to close the game out. 

    Wilshire's shot from the edge of the penalty area kisses the outside of the post. 

    SIX minutes of added time to play.... 

  5. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    A Stoke equaliser is looking more and more likely with two minutes to go... 

  6. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    The Potters looking a little more aggressive now but Arnautovic's attempt fires wide followed shortly by attempts from Peter Crouch and Jonathan Walters' head. 

    Seems there's life in Stoke's legs yet... 


    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Josh King is brought down by Pieters and is brought off... After a little confusion about who's coming on, who's going off, Marc Pugh is brought on. 

    After all that, Bournemouth immediately allow Stoke to have a shot but Shaqiri thumps it over the bar. 

  8. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Last 15 minutes here but Stoke are going to have to create more of a threat if they want to challenge Bournemouth for the three points...

    Can't see it happening myself.


    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    It's the "old guard" for Mark Hughes now as Jonathan Walters joins Peter Crouch on the field. 

    It's Bojan who heads to sit the rest of the game out. 


    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Wilfred Bony is heading off for Stoke.

    Peter Crouch on. 

    Mark Hughes wanting to mix it up a little? 

    Bournemouth's turn to make a change and Benik Afobe comes on for Callum Wilson. 

    Who, by the way takes his sweet time, being sure to turn to applaud the Bournemouth fans and shake several team-mates' hands on his way off. 

    Sort of see what Stoke mean now... 

    Peter Crouch
  11. Post update

    Junior Stanislas appears to have landed on his shoulder and is heading off for treatment... Slight dislocation? Can't look if I'm honest.

    Few minutes attention from the team doctor, quick wiggle and he is back on! 

  12. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    It's been an entertaining but pretty bad tempered game so far... 

    Five yellow cards. 

    Two penalty shouts - one given, one not. 

    A host of fouls left, right and centre. 

    Jack Wilshere

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Glen Johnson on for Phil Bardsley

  14. Post update

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    Tough guy Phil Bardsley seems to be in some pain on the floor after a bit of a clattering. He hobbles off, back on, and then thinks better of it and hobbles back down the tunnel. 

    Stoke momentarily down to 10 men. 

    Phil Bardsley receives treatment
  15. Yellow card - Federici

    Stoke 0-1 Bournemouth

    It remains 0-1 for now. 

    Bournemouth's keeper was booked for appearing to put off Bojan as he prepared to take the penalty. 


    Bojan lightly fouled on his way out of the area by Simon Francis. 

    The Spaniard steps up to take it and he's missed it! Hit it hard and it strikes the crossbar!

    Bojan Krkic
  17. Second half kicks off

    An early corner in the second half for Bournemouth taken by Simon Francis but cleared by Wilfred Bony.

    A reminder, Stoke are unbeaten in their last three home games but are deservedly behind here.
