'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Last Time Round: Norwich City 0 Stoke City 1

Norwich City 0 Stoke City 1
Coca-Cola Football League Championship
Tuesday 11th March 2008

Mamady Sidibe's header gave the Potters all three points the last time Stoke came to Carrow Road.

The Canaries started the game stronger and Ryan Bertrand went close on 12 minutes after a quick break by Lee Croft following a Stoke corner, and pint-sized striker Jamie Cureton carved-out a couple of half chances in the first twenty minutes.

Stoke's best chance of the half predictably came from a set piece as Jon Otsemobor nearly turned Liam Lawrence's corner into his own net, David Marshall gratefully falling on the loose ball.

The Potters took the lead arguably against the run of play after 58 minutes courtesy of yet another long throw by Rory Delap.

His ball launched into the box and amid chaos in the City box Sidibe looped the ball over the helpless Marshall into the unguarded net.

The Canaries pushed for an equaliser and came close twice through Ched Evans, and again from Jamie Cureton but couldn't find a way beyond Nash in the Stoke goal - and the day was summed-up perfectly when Cureton missed an open goal from just three yards out.
