​Joselu brace bags Stoke victory over Bolton


Spanish striker Joselu came off the bench to help secure victory for Stoke City over Bolton on Sunday.

The 27-year old scored two goals in 11 minutes to cancel out Adam Le Fondre‘s opener for the Wanderers, with the match finishing 2-1.

Potters boss Mark Hughes started the match with a new look back three that consisted of Kurt Zouma, Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron.

Hughes, however, would have been frustrated with his sides inability to break the deadlock in the first half.

City were punished for their complacency when Le Fondre found the back of the net for the game’s opening goal.

It would look like the match would end on a frustrating note for Stoke, but a few inspired changes from Hughes changed all of that.

Joselu replaced Saido Berahino on the 66th minute mark and it took him only ten minutes to make an impact on the game.

Fellow substitute Bojan demonstrated his quality to find some space before locating his compatriot, who finished the move sublimely.

However, Joselu wasn’t done yet as he completed the Potters comeback with three minutes remaining. This time, another substitute, Mame Diouf, done brilliantly to find space and once again, Joselu was in the right place to score.

City end their pre-season preparations when they take on RB Leipzig next weekend.
