The Stoke attacker lifted the ball over the crossbar from a good position after the visiting side failed to clear their lines from a free kick, and a chance came and went for Sane up the other end - Butland again coming out on top in that personal battle.

"Now we focus on Stoke". Paul Lambert's men now sit in 19th place, two points away from safety and look set to play a full part in this season's relegation battle which sees just eight points separate the bottom nine clubs.
