Lawrence the hero for Potters

Published Add your comment

Stoke midfielder Liam Lawrence came off the bench to score the deciding goal in a 2-1 win over Coventry which lifted the Potters back to the top of the Coca-Cola Championship.

Lawrence, a 66th minute replacement for Stephen Pearson, took just 13 minutes to make an impact as Tony Pulis´ side won for only the second time in their last nine matches.

Earlier Elliott Ward and Ricardo Fuller both scored from the penalty spot for Coventry and Stoke respectively before Lawrence expertly steered home his 15th goal of the season to grab the points 11 minutes from time.
