The £2.75million summer signing from Ipswich scored the winner in the 47th minute at the Britannia Stadium.

It was a special moment for Walters, who had played for Blackburn in his youth before joining Bolton.

Stoke made the breakthrough two minutes into the half after a towering leap from Kenwyne Jones released Matthew Etherington.

He threaded the ball through to Walters, who had timed his run to perfection before drilling a shot beyond Robinson.
