Saido Berahino was on target in Stoke City’s 3-2 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in Saturday’s English Championship outing at the bet365 Stadium.
The 25-year-old came off the bench for Senegal international Mame Diouf to force a fight back for the Potters with his 79th-minute effort.
A minute after the strike, Thomas Ince got the second for Gary Rowett’s men but Tony Mowbray’s side held on to their three-goal lead.
Bradley Dack, Daniel Graham and Harrison Reed had earlier scored in the 26th, 44th and 46th minutes respectively for the visitors.
Congo DR international Benik Afobe featured for 60 minutes before making way for Peter Crouch while Nigeria midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo was paraded for the entire duration.
With the defeat, Stoke City are 18th in the league standings with nine points from nine games.
They will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they clash with Nottingham Forest in a League Cup tie on Wednesday.
