Stoke are tumbled by Rangers by 2-0


Stoke 0 QPR (1) 2 – 1/5/21 3pm

Stoke fall further into oblivion (14th actually) with another defeat, partly self inflicted. Who would expect Harry Souttar to slip up allowing Charlie Austin to score? Well, here’s how the game unfolded in real time:

Stoke need a win or their 2nd-half-of-the-season will be worse than the Rowett/Nathan season! And we thought THAT was bad! Powell returns for Thompson.
13.15 Blimey! Powell doesn’t even last the quarter hour!! Thompson comes off the bench to get his place back.
16.42 0-1 !! Souttar is uncharacteristically caught on the ball, dispossessed by Dykes, and Austin fires home. MON will be having kittens! Very large ones.
31.30 Matondo gets some studs, but somehow gets up again (after treatment). Tymon then decides to have a shot with his right foot…well, you can guess the rest.
43.35 Fletcher has a great chance at full stretch, but unsurprisingly is caught offside.
HT Stoke 0 QPR 1 – predictable sadly.
48.01 Stoke come out fighting. Even Clucas has remembered which end the goal is!
54.20 Adam Davies makes a fantastic save to keep Stoke in the game, as Austin hits a beaut from a corner. But had the whistle already gone…?
55.40 Fletcher replaced by Jacob Brown.
56.19 Keeper Seny Dieng almost allows a back pass to slip between his legs! 1970s comedy moment!
69.54 0-2 !! Stoke split open like a kipper as the ball comes right across from the left to Osman Kakay to finish smoothly from the right.
75.38 Smith off and …Sam Vokes is on!! Now we’re going to see something! Or other!
86.35 AND Vokes misses a sitter, slicing it wide. You couldn’t make it up.
FT Stoke 0 QPR 2. Stoke slip to 14th!
