Stoke City vs. Newcastle United: Final score 2-1, Potters pull out impressive comeback

Matthew Lewis

Cameron Jerome scored the winner for the Toffees, who now sit ninth in the Premier League.

It's been a while since we've seen this version of Stoke City. They've looked a little less lively than in years passed so far this season, but pulled out an excellent comeback on Wednesday night to sink Newcastle. The Magpies went ahead right after the start of the second half, but two late goals from Jonathan Walters and Cameron Jerome sealed a crucial three points for Stoke.

After spending last season as a scoring machine, Papiss Cisse has struggled so far this year, but managed to score his second goal of the season in the 47th minute. Demba Ba set it up with a shot of his own that Asmir Begovic saved, but was unable to hold or clear. Cisse found himself in the perfect spot and finished off the chance.

Kenwyne Jones and combined with Walters to set up Stoke's equalizer, which looked like it had been coming for quite some time, despite Newcastle's solid defending. Jones hit a cross into the box that found the head of Walters, who directed the ball on target and past Tim Krul.

Four minutes later, the Toffees went ahead with a classic long ball goal. Substitute Cameron Jerome, who replaced Matthew Etherington after 68 minutes, finished with a half-volley to give his team a lead that they would hold onto. With their win, Stoke have catapulted up the table into the top half.
