Stoke City PL2 v Albion PL2 match report

ALBION's PL2 side lost 4-2 to Stoke City on a bitterly cold evening at St George's Park despite an excellent first half display.

Callum Morton opened the scoring for the Baggies on 15 minutes when he latched onto a goalkeeping error to turn and hammer the ball in from close range.

With 26 minutes on the clock Morton then doubled his tally after he was played through on goal by a fantastic Kyle Jameson pass, and the forward made no mistake in slotting it home.

Stoke had a chance to pull one back when they were awarded a penalty 12 minutes before the break, but Daniel Jarvis' effort from the spot went wide.

They went close again just after the hour mark when Tyrese Campbell's shot came back off the post.

After half time goalscorer Morton was shown a red card for an off-the-ball incident.

On 67 minutes Albion were then reduced to nine men as Nathan Ferguson was then sent off for a challenge on Oliver Shenton.

The Potters halved the deficit with quarter of an hour to go through Campbell.

And Stoke equalised three minutes later when substitute Shola Ayoola smashed the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.

In the 87th minute the home side then went in front when Campbell pounced on Brad House's goal kick before finishing into the bottom corner.

Stoke scored their fourth and final goal in added time thanks to Ayoola's second of the game.

ALBION: House, Soleman, Ferguson, Jameson, Melbourne; Clayton-Phillips (Tulloch 81), Brown (Martinez 62), Bradley, McCourt (Harmon 90); Azaz, Morton.

Substitutes: Przybek, Soule.
