Stoke 1 Aston Villa 3. All over and Villa claim a vital victory which lifts them out of the drop zone and drags Stoke into trouble.
Foul by Adam on N'Zogbia, for which he sees yellow. All gone wrong for Stoke. Fans flooding through the exits at the Britannia Stadium.
GOAL VILLA - BENTEKE. Game over as Benteke makes it three. With Stoke pushing men forward, they leave gaping holes at the back. Benteke is sprung clear. He keeps his composure to slide under Begovic.
GOAL VILLA - LOWTON. What a goal from Lowton! And what an important one for Villa. Unstoppable volley from the full-back. A corner is cleared to 30 yards from goal, but is returned with interest into the top corner.
Final change of the afternoon sees Weimann make way for Bent. Maybe Villa feel they can grab a second and three much-needed points.
Villa throw on a pair of experienced legs in the form of N'Zogbia. Bowery, who had a great chance at the start of the second half, makes his way off.
GOAL STOKE - KIGHTLY. The hosts level things up. Two subs with a big part to play here. Adam starts the move, feeding Walters. Adam is then able to poke the ball through to Kightly, who sweeps the ball past Guzan from 10 yards out.
Final change for Stoke sees Adam enter the fold. It's not NZonzi to make way, but Shotton. Ironic cheers as he makes his way from the field.
First change for Villa sees Agbonlahor make way for Sylla. Lambert looking to tighten things up in the middle of the park and play for 1-0.
Another caution, this time for Shawcross. He stepped across Weimann as the Villa man looked to burst past him. Stoke skipper looked slow and short on mobility there. Westwood's free-kick picks out Begovic again.
Benteke turns the ball around the corner for Agbonlahor, and is clattered in the process. Clattenburg tries to play advantage, but there is none there. Shotton booked for his late challenge. Westwood's free-kick makes its way through to Begovic.
Wilson has now gone down and will be replaced by Jerome. He hobbles from the field. Not been the best of seasons on the injury front for Wilson.
Change at the break for Stoke as Kightly replaces Etherington.
Josh says: 'I'm surprised Villa are winning at half time considering our track record of 0-0's at the Britannia - I reckon a 2-0 win.'
Remember you can bet in-play throughout the game at Skybet.com. They say: 'Can Stoke reverse their woeful form after the break? They are 5/1 to win now with the draw 9/4, while Villa are 4/7 to hold on for the win.'
Eoin Martin says: 'Brilliant first half from the lions, dominating against a weak Stoke side. If Villa see this through it will be a great and important victory.'
Paul Mitchell says: 'Can we play Stoke every week? Come on Villa. Get us 3 valuable points boys.'
Phil Humprhis says: 'Hope to see Stoke come back in the second half & go on to win this game 2-1. If not I think we are doomed to relegation.'
Matthew Morse says: 'Unfortunately, I can see Peter Crouch coming on at half time and scoring an early equaliser! UTV!'
Stoke 0 Aston Villa 1. Boos ring out around the Britannia. Agbonlahor's early goal has the visitors in front and the locals are not happy.
Baker comes over the top of Jones to concede a throw. Another chance for Shotton from a wide area. Stoke give the ball away and Agbonlahor springs clear. He goes around Begovic, before going down. He is booked for diving.
GOAL VILLA - AGBONLAHOR. The visitors break the deadlock. Lowton takes the throw, and combines with Bowery. He is allowed to break to the dead-ball line before picking out Agbonlahor. His first shot is blocked, the ball breaks back to him and he rolls home from close range.
Andy Lunn is a Villan not too sure about their selection. He says: 'Why is he playing Bowery ahead of Bent??? This just doesn't make sense. We need a goal threat from somewhere other than relying on Benteke. Bennett at left back is also a real concern for me. We look a bit feeble in the middle of the park too and I fear Stoke will bully us off the pitch.'
Phil Humprhis hopes to see the hosts dominate. He says: 'Must win game for both clubs, probably more for the Villa. Would love to see Stoke go all out for a win & score more than 1 goal in the process, too much at stake to sit on a 1 nil lead.'
Anne Lovely is in far from optimistic mood prior to kick-off. She says: 'Our only hope is that Kenwyne bags a brace or that Walters has a blinder. Slightly more likely than the Pope converting to Islam.Ever hopeful.'
Just under half an hour until kick-off. Keep your thoughts coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @SkySportsChrisB.
Joe Curtis isn't impressed by Stoke's starting XI. He says: 'Looks like TP is going for ANOTHER draw today with his starting line up and 2 proven England goal scorers on the bench.'
Matt Morse thinks we are in for a close encounter of the football kind. He says: 'It's going to be a draw for me, either 1-1 or 2-2. Both great sides, but a leaky Villa defence and a a strong Villa attack will equal out!'
Ryan Ward is quickest out of the blocks with a pre-match musing. He says: 'Villa will look to counter attack with the likes of Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke, so I can see Villa winning this game 2-0.'
You can also bet in-play throughout the afternoon at Skybet.com. Stoke start as favourites on home soil at 23/20, with Villa 23/10 and the draw 12/5.
