Stoke sweep aside Thun

Published Add your comment

Stoke cruised into the Europa League group stages as Kenwyne Jones helped them wrap up a comfortable 5-1 aggregate victory over FC Thun with a brace in Thursday's 4-1 play-off second leg win at the Britannia Stadium.

Going into the game 1-0 up from last Thursday's initial meeting in Switzerland, the Potters soon extended their lead, scoring three times in the first half through headers from Matthew Upson and Jones and a drilled effort by Glenn Whelan.

Jones crashed home his second with just under 20 minutes to go before substitute Andreas Wittwer netted a consolation for Thun.
