Review:
A poor start and we went down after an early 10 minute goal but the equaliser was great from Lolley. The second goal was even better as Cash swung in a cross from the right for Ameobi to get up high to and then Grabban struck with half an hour to go to make it 3-1. A late second goal from Stoke made the last 5 minutes a lot more worrying than it needed to be, but we are now top of the league! Michael Dawson's 30th minute injury sounds a bad knock, and we missed him last year, but hopefully the international break will help next week.
