Fuller earns Potters replay

Published Add your comment

Ricardo Fuller powered home a second-half header from Rory Delap's long throw to earn Stoke an FA Cup fifth-round replay with Manchester City following the 1-1 draw.

Shaun Wright-Phillips had tapped City into a first-half lead after a disastrous blunder by Ryan Shawcross in front of England boss Fabio Capello.

But Stoke refused to give in and when Shay Given failed to come off his line to collect Delap's throw, Fuller came through a pile of bodies to equalise.
