Erik Pieters scored his first goal in six years in any competition and it was enough to secure a home win for Stoke against Newcastle.
The irony here is that Pieters' first goal in such a long time really wasn't intentional. His intention appeared to be to make a cross and it ended up finding the net behind Tim Krul. The win moved Stoke to within three points of Newcastle and a place in the top half of the table. With Newcastle stumbling badly you wouldn't bet against the Potters finishing 9th for the first time in their history. Apr 12 - 2:19 PM
