Tight Result - Stoke City Beat The Baggies 1-0

This result continues Stoke's excellent run of form, a hard fought, but deserved win, courtesy of Higginbottom's penalty late in the first half after Darel Russell had been upended.

Stoke were just the better of two very good and wellmatched teams in the first half. In the second half honours equal, except for the last 15 minutes or so, when West Bromwich exerted more pressure, but could not break through for the equalising goal.

Stoke could improve on 6th place in the league if they can deliver in tomorrow's difficult home fixture against Cardiff City.On current form you would not bet against Stoke.As things stand this fixture would be Andy Griffin's last match for us on loan from Portsmouth.On the plus side Ricardo Fuller has served his 3 match ban and should be available for the match.
