Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 M. Etherington gets yellow.
Norwich's defence take more than one attempt to head the ball clear following a Stoke cross and Jones heads over, before Matthew Etherington is booked after an altercation with Sebastien Bassong.
90' +1 Stoke throw centre back Ryan Shawcross forward alongside Crouch and Jones, and the giant is embarrassed when he fails to connect with the ball properly as he takes a shot from the left edge of the box following a knock down from Jones, though he was called offside anyway.
89' Substitute striker Steve Morison receives a clearance from Norwich but is unable to hold the ball up as he unsuccessfully attempts to win a corner.
87' S. Morison enters the game and replaces W. Hoolahan.
Snodgrass fires his shot into the wall after a short lay-off from the free kick.
86' R. Shawcross gets yellow.
Ryan Shawcross receives a yellow card after hauling back Grant Holt after the forward had controlled a long pass forward and threatened to break beyond him.
85' G. Whelan enters the game and replaces A. Wilkinson.
Left back Andy Wilkinson departs for midfielder Glenn Whelan.
83' Norwich manage to string a series of passes together before Pilkington concedes a throw-in under heavy pressure on the left flank.
82' The Canaries have been under siege in the last few minutes but have a respite when Charlie Adam gives away a free kick on the half-way line.
77' Kenwyne Jones controls on his chest following a neat flick-on from Peter Crouch, but drags his shot wide of the left post after shaping to shoot. It was a good chance and Stoke will be frustrated after threatening to get back in the game but failing to convert either of their last two chances.
75' Whittaker has moved to left back and was alert to clear the danger after Jones received the ball on the edge of the box. The ball broke to Crouch who turned and fired an acrobatic effort over the bar.
