Premier League Review: Late Caroll Strike Dents Stoke Survival Hopes

Substitute Andy Caroll scored on the stroke of fulltime to earn his side a 1-1 draw against Stoke City thereby denting the Potters’ bid to escape relegation at the end of the season.

English striker Peter Crouch had given the visitors a 79th minute lead having come on as a 2nd half substitute before the late show from the former Liverpool and Newcastle United striker.

Stoke City, second bottom with 28 points, fail to adequately close the gap on the last survival spot (17th) presently occupied by Swansea City (33 points) while West Ham United are up to 14th position with 35 points in the keenly contested race for survival.
