Joselu makes scintillating comeback as he registers a goal on the scoresheet in Stokes under-23’s drilling of chesterfield. The Potter’s right back Phil Bardsley limped off the field shortly after the commencement of their game with Switzerland side Neuchatel Xamax which saw a formidable stoke side win a narrow 1-0 margin.
Joselu opened scoring for the potters as they trumped past League Two side, Chesterfield who showed less composure and verve. Stoke went ahead to trash their counterparts a whopping 4-0. Joselu broke the deadlock in the opening stages of the encounter after collecting a well finished pass from teammate, Tyrese Campbell slotted in well poised finish home. Campbell quickly made it two when he broke behind Chesterfield’s defence to drive home a simple touch.
Campbell was on the score sheet again shortly after the interval putting a fine finish from Dom Telford effort on goal to make it 3-0. Chris O’ Grady converted a penalty after Telford was fouled by Ian Evett to seal their win. Tom Edwards, 18, got a nod to start with the first team on Bardsley’s absence- got on the pitch at Half time against Amiens as Glen Johnson (Calf) pulled out.
“Glen Johnson was a little bit tight in his calf before the game so we took him off at half-time just as a precaution so that was the only injury. We came through otherwise unscathed so that’s good,” the manager said.
