Stoke were denied a winning start to their Europa League Group E campaign by Dynamo Kiev's late equaliser in the 1-1 draw at the Valeriy Lobanovskiy Stadium.

The Ukrainian hosts dominated the first 45 minutes and should have gone ahead midway through when Andriy Yarmolenko blazed wide with the goal at his mercy.

Having weathered the storm, the Potters took the lead 10 minutes into the second half when Cameron Jerome finished from Ryan Shotton's cross, but after Oleksandr Aliev had hit the bar for Dynamo, Ognjen Vukojevic levelled in stoppage time.
