Goal for Stoke! Norwich pay the price for defending far too deep. Whelan puts in a ball from the right and Kenwyne Jones rises highest to plant the ball beyond Ruddy into the corner. Heartbreak for the Canaries. Joy for the Potters.
Substitution for Norwich : Chris Martin jogs off to be replaced by Simeon Jackson.
Substitution for Stoke: Ryan Shotton is on for Jonathan Woodgate
Substitution for Norwich: Andrew Surman comes on for the impressive Eliott Bennett
Substitution for Norwich: Daniel Ayala makes his debut. coming on for Anthony Pilkington.
Leon barnett tangles with Walters in the box, both players go down and the referee gives a penalty, senidng Barnett off in the process. Looked harsh to me that.
Penalty to Stoke!!
There's the half-time whistle. Paul lambert will be delighted with his side's performance so far, they grew stronger as the half went on. Plenty to ponder for Stoke manager Tony Pulis though, they have not done enough in the Norwich penalty area for me.
Yellow card: Ryan Shawcross has also been booked, I think for his reaction following the goal.
From the resulting free-kick Johnson curls in a wonderfull ball that Ritchie de Laet meets to glance past Begovic. Advantage Norwich!
Goal For Norwich!
Yellow card: Ouch! Bennett is too quick for Jonathan Woodgate who goes steaming in and completely misses the ball, sending the Norwich player flying.Woodgate is Rightly booked.
