Stoke reserves beat Chelsea

Stoke reserves beat Chelsea

As if beating Arsenal wasn't enough for the Potters at the weekend, then the Stoke second string have completed a London double and beaten their Chelsea counterparts 2-0 in the capital tonight.

Two late goals from Tom Soares (79 mins) and Danny Pugh (90 mins) was enough to see off the Blues at Brentford's Griffin Park. Steve Simonsen also saved a penalty from Stoch on 62 mins.

Up and coming Chelsea star, Scott Sinclair was amongst the home team.

This was the reserves' first win of their Premier League Reserve South season and will help to boost the confidence in the dressing room still further after the first team's great win at the Brit.

Stoke City: Simonsen, Wilkinson, Cort, Sonko, Dickinson, Soares, Whelan, Pugh, Tonge, Cresswell, Pericard. Subs: St. Louis-Hamilton, D. Phillips, McDonald, Moult. Wedderburn.

That's a strong reserve side, that'd give the Championship a run for its money!

It is when you see Stoke putting out a reserve side which looks well able to hold its own in the Championship that you realise just how far we have come in a short time. Sounds as if Pericard had another decent game (he hit the bar) - perhaps he is fianlly living up to his potential. I still think it is too little to late to make his mark at Stoke but he is now probably worth a punt for a Championship club.

Many of our youngsters (ie the first year pros newly graduated from the Academy) are out on loan to lower league sides. Pulis reckons that time on the pitch for lower league teams in competitive games is far better for the young players than reserve games - and I think he may be correct. This way it also means that our second string senior players get to stay match fit, as warming the bench with no games doesn't do anything for a player's match fitness.
