Published Add your comment

David Foley's rocket dumped Barclays Premier League Stoke out of the FA Cup as Hartlepool claimed another top-flight scalp following their 2-0 victory.

The 5ft 4in winger blasted home a 25-yard drive 14 minutes from time to seal a famous third-round victory at Victoria Park.

Defender Michael Nelson had earlier put Pools, who dumped West Brom out of the Carling Cup in August, ahead with a 49th-minute header as the depleted Potters were well beaten.
