Stoke booked their place in the Carling Cup fourth round after a penalty shoot-out victory over Tottenham at the Britannia Stadium.
The Potters triumphed 7-6 in the shoot-out thanks to Thomas Sorensen's save from Spurs debutant Massimo Luongo.
The game had finished goalless after extra-time, with Sorensen palming a powerful strike by Roman Pavlyuchenko over the bar in the 53rd minute and Potters substitute Jon Walters failing to convert a one-on-one chance in the additional half-hour.
