Stoke's unbeaten run ended as two players see red

Stoke City had two players sent off as their nine match unbeaten was ended last night.

The Potters, who before the game had not conceded a goal in their previous six games, were beaten 3-1 at Swansea.

Manager Nathan Jones had made three changes going into the game with Sam Clucas, Ashley Williams and Sam Vokes coming for the injured Tom Ince and Ryan Shawcross while Bojan dropped to the bench.

Daniel James put the home side ahead midway through the first half.

Mike van der Hoorn doubled their lead five minutes before the break.

James McClean then pulled one back for the Potters in first half injury time.

Stoke were then reduced to ten men when Bruno Martins Indi saw red just after the break.

It got even worse for the visitors on the hour mark when Tom Edwards also saw red for a second bookable offence.

Oli McBurnie then added a third for the hosts four minutes from time.

Stoke remain in 15th place in the table.

They are back in action on Saturday when they entertain struggling Rotherham United.
