Cardiff   0 - 2   Stoke

Jon Walters scores
Stoke striker Jon Walters celebrates his sixth goal this term

By David Dulin
BBC Sport Wales at the Cardiff City Stadium

Stoke City striker Jon Walters scored two extra-time goals to edge Cardiff out of the FA Cup and set up a fourth round clash at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Walters struck 90 seconds into extra time as he headed in Michael Tonge's superb driven corner at the near post.

He slid home his second five minutes from time, beating Tom Heaton at the second attempt from an acute angle.

Cardiff felt aggrieved as both Michael Chopra and Jon Parkin had penalty appeals turned down during normal time.

Parkin, making his home Cardiff debut thought he should have won a first-half spot-kick when the legs of 'The Beast' tangled with Salif Diao just inside the box.

And substitute Chopra, who scored in original 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium, thought he had a strong case when Danny Collins brought him down in injury time at the end of normal time.

But the protests were in vain as the Championship high-fliers - and 2008 FA Cup finalists - battled valiantly but were nudged out by a Premier League side in a match that failed to spark into life.

It was probably not helped by both managers ringing the changes, with six coming from Cardiff and 10 from Stoke boss Tony Pulis back in his home-land of Wales.

Danny Higginbotham was the only survivor from the weekend win over Bolton - but the Stoke captain lasted just 10 minutes before being forced off injured.

That meant a reshuffle to the visitors' defence who were the busier in a lacklustre first half.

Jon Walters' opening header left keeper Tom Heaton helpless

Lee Naylor wasted a 25-yard free kick won from Abdoulaye Faye's foul on Parkin when the full-back blasted well over.

Then, Andy Keogh picked up the ball on the right and squared to Danny Drinkwater on the edge of the box, but the Manchester United loanee's shot lacked power to trouble Stoke stopper Thomas Sorensen.

Cardiff saw their first penalty appeal through Parkin turned down by referee Peter Walton on the half-hour as the first half fizzled out.

Stoke went close early in the second half but Ryan Shotton should have done better heading over Walters' flick-on from Jermaine Pennant's delivery.

And soon after, no-one picked up Shotton who was free to power a 12-yard header over from another Pennant corner, before Pennant sent a free kick straight at Cardiff keeper Tom Heaton.

Cardiff threw on Chopra for Parkin and he quickly won a free-kick which eventually fell to Keogh who fired wide from the edge of the box.

Stoke substitute Tom Soares brought some life into the visitors' attack and he saw a 12-yard strike deflect off Gabor Gyepes for a corner.

Stoke finished stronger but it was Keogh at the other end who almost stole it in normal time, driving at goal before firing right-footed just over the bar.

And Chopra was denied a penalty deep into stoppage time after he appeared to be hacked down by Danny Collins.

Stoke rubbed salt into Cardiff's wounds 90 seconds into the first period of extra time when Pulis' side took the lead.

Walters met Tonge's corner at the near post to beat Heaton who could only help the ball into the net.

Cardiff pressed for a leveller to force the tie into penalties, but Stoke comfortably held out and Walters added his second finishing from a tight angle after his first shot was beaten back to him by Heaton.
