Stoke   3 - 1   Man City

Ryan Shawcross heads in for Stoke
Given failed to reach a Delap throw, and Shawcross headed in to make it 2-1

By Caroline Cheese

Extra-time goals from Ryan Shawcross and Tuncay earned Stoke an FA Cup quarter-final and all but ended 10-man Manchester City's hopes of silverware.

Dave Kitson combined with Tuncay to score a 79th-minute opener, only for Craig Bellamy to lash in an equaliser.

In a chaotic finish, Emmanuel Adebayor was sent off for raising an arm at Shawcross, who then headed Stoke in front five minutes into extra time.

Tuncay's clever run and shot sealed the win and a meeting with Chelsea.

Manchester City, meanwhile, can now focus all their attentions on the race for fourth in the Premier League - although they are likely to be without Adebayor for the next three games, including Saturday's trip to Chelsea.

Manager Roberto Mancini will no doubt look back on the sending-off of his Togo striker as the turning point against Stoke.

A straight red card certainly seemed harsh after Adebayor appeared to accidentally strike Shawcross in the neck as he tried to hold off the defender.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis, though, was rewarded for some brave second-half changes, including bringing the attacking Tuncay on for defensive midfielder Salif Diao shortly after half-time.

It was the Turk who brilliantly helped fellow substitute Kitson to put Stoke ahead, but within two minutes, Bellamy latched on to Adebayor's clever cushioned ball and half-volleyed in the equaliser.

606: DEBATE
TMGBlue - The Explosive One!

Adebayor stared in disbelief as referee Steve Bennett ended his participation a minute later amid high drama at the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke had chances to win it in normal time through Shawcross and Ricardo Fuller, but the visitors held out to take it into extra-time.

But only five minutes in, Rory Delap - standing nearer the halfway line than the goalline - launched one of his vicious, long throws into the box and Shawcross easily beat Shay Given to head into the empty net.

Four minutes later, the tie was all but over when Stoke took advantage of some tiring legs in the Manchester City defence.

Glenn Whelan beat two men before passing to Tuncay, who also jinked past two challenges and slotted past Given and the despairing efforts of Joleon Lescott on the line.


Stoke boss Tony Pulis:
"We've played a team three times in the past two weeks, a team of unbelievable resources and quality.

"We have managed to come out on top, so we are delighted, really pleased.

"In the first half I thought Thomas Sorensen kept us in the game with a couple of great saves. But after that I thought we were the better team."
