Tyrese cracker caps Stoke City win

Stoke 2 Peterboro 0 – 20/11/21 3pm

A brilliant finale, a red card and a Tyrese Campbell special that brought the house down, came at the end of what had been a frustrating game. 3 points is 3 points, and Tyrese is back! Here’s how the game unfolded in real time:
No Souttar, Thompson or even Joe bruised-thigh-playing-for-England-U23s Bursik. But with Vrancic, Chester & Davies, who should be complaining? Nobody. I remember Nick Powell, Clucas & Tyrese. Well, one day they’ll all be back. In the meantime, can they see off promoted Peterborough?
2.15 1-0 !! Vrancic hits one from outside the area with his left foot into the bottom right hand corner, with a slight deflection. Just as the United fans were trying to find reason to bait Stoke and their lovely ground. Shame.
6.50 Jacob Brown almost catches out keeper Cornell making a clearance in front of the Boothen. The ball ricochets past the post. Serves United right for changing ends!
24.15 Unnecessary yellow for Batth, going in like Rambo in the centre circle. Ref then drops his yellow card, and has to be reminded to pick it up.
27.20 Frankie Kent goes barging into Fletcher, sending him flying and then is SOOOOOO indignant when the ref whistles! Frank is by now halfway up the pitch, and comes back ffffing & bliming, fuming like there’s no tomorrow. Ho Ho. Merry Christmas, Frankie!
33.25 Boro free-kick just touches the top of the net, but Boro fans think it’s a goal. Much ribbing from Stokies follows.
41.10 Great break results in a snap-shot from Vrancic just over the bar. Hope he doesn’t burn himself out.
45+2 Game peters out. HT 1-0. Weak. Bring on Tyrese…
Attendance is a reasonable 21,285
48.23 Brown beats the rush keeper, but his shot is too timid to reach the empty goal. For timid read feeble.
51.10 Vrancic is felled, and it’s Taylor’s turn to scream indignation! Clearly part of their training!
53.20 Somehow a double save by clown keeper Cornell keeps the ball out from Chester’s flick header and Fletcher on the line! Clowns, eh?
56.20 Boro score…but it’s given offside. Taylor’s shot comes back off the bar, but Szmodics header home is the offender. MON’s kitten production status is being observed.
59.50 Jacob chases the keeper, but then collapses in a heap. He’s fine, but he had me worried! Two minutes later Tymon is down having treatment. Not totally convinced by these injuries…just saying.
67.00 Morgan Fox on for Tymon…hope he’s ready! The rest of the team don’t look ready!
69.00 Sawyers, Bembele and the corner flag have a love-in. Romaine is the winner, and gets a free kick.
71.15 Brown body-checked by Thompson, who somehow gets away with it – ref never giving a penalty for that. Joe Allen then gets a yellow card for a trip.
76.30 Jake Brown replaced by Tyrese Campbell.
81.30 Fletch replaced by Surridge.
87.25 Tommy Smith then goes down, and the United mob thinks time is being wasted. As if.
90.00 Surridge is shoved into a hoarding, and locks horns with the defender’s chest. Somehow ref sees a red card. So much argy bargy on the pitch, & the ref sees THIS as a red. Shocking.
90+4 The 4th official has found 7 extra minutes somewhere!! Meanwhile, Tyrese gets booked.
90+6 2-0!!!! Tyrese breaks and scores!!!
