Great save by Grant at the other ned of the field as Boyd gets on the end of a flick on. He extended his arm out well there to get a hand on the ball. Marney then blazes over the bar from 20 yards out. Poor attempt.
And there's the half-time whistle. Stoke comfortable here some of the passing and football has been great after the wobbly first five minutes or so.
Marko Arnautovic gets the second half underway. No changes at the break by either side.
Grant pushes Barnes effort over the bar far a corner
The ball fell to him after a 50/50 on the edge of the area but Stoke's stopper wasn't to be beaten with that. Corner cleared too.

A mix up in defence sees Diouf and Johnson both rise to head a cross away but instead give away a corner. Poor attempt from the ball in though and Stoke have nothing to worry about in the end.
Allen with an effort at goal from 15 yards out but that one was saved by Robinson. He didn't really get any power on that one after Arnautovic's great run down the left
Arnautovic subbed off here on 71 after a late challenge on him. I think he's alright though. On comes Peter Crouch
Dyche throws on Vokes for Boyd here as he looks to force a way back in with 14 minutes left on the clock. So far Stoke have been able to answer every question put to them this afternoon
Crouch with an acrobatic volley - deflected behind for a corner!
That one had shades of his Man City goal in it!
Corner cleared but Stoke come back with good work from Walters against Flanagan. It falls to Allen but he's closed down by three men. He squaes but Mee stops it reaching Crouch
More good work from Walters down the left flank past two men down the left wing. A cross goes into the box for Allen but he can't trouble Robinson
