Liam Lawrence's goal 15 minutes from time virtually secured Stoke's Barclays Premier League future with a 1-0 victory over struggling Blackburn.

The midfielder showed great composure to control James Beattie's flick on, turn inside Gael Givet and fire past goalkeeper Paul Robinson at the near post.

It lifted Tony Pulis' side to 39 points, well clear of the relegation zone with five matches remaining.
