Potters salvage Newport draw

Stoke were forced to come from behind to salvage a 1-1 pre-season draw away to non-league Newport County on Saturday.

Manager Tony Pulis sent out an imposing XI against the Blue Square Bet Premier side which included the likes of Ryan Shawcross, Robert Huth, Jermaine Pennant, Matthew Etherington, Kenwyne Jones and Jonathan Walters among others.

But it was the Potters who fell behind on the stroke of half-time as home captain Gary Warren sent a looping header into the back of the net past Asmir Begovic.

Yet the visitors equalised late on through Jones' tap-in.
