Odemwingie scores debut goal for Stoke City

The former Cardiff City star got his first goal for the Potters as they shared points with Southampton away in the English Premier League

Nigeria’s Peter Odemwingie was on target for Stoke City as they played out a 2-2 away with Southampton on Saturday afternoon at St Mary’s Stadium.

The striker who made a winning start for the Potters in their 2-1 defeat of Manchester United in their last outing got his side's first goal in the 38th minute after Rickie Lambert had put the hosts ahead in the 6th minute of the encounter.

Odemwingie made an intelligent run off the right flank and Adam finds him with an outstanding through pass and shot past onrushing Boruc.

Steven Davies put Southampton ahead three minutes later but it was Peter Crouch's goal that ensured the Potters shared the spoils with the Saints

With this result, Stoke City are now 12th on the English Premiership log with 26 points and will host Swansea in their next league outing on February 12, 2014.
