Etebo received a pass from Thomas Ince and fired in a right-footed shot past goalkeeper David Raya from outside of the penalty area.

The former Feirense midfielder is having decent debut campaign in England with commanding displays in the Pottees' midfield and has featured in 28 league matches so far including 23 starts.

After overcoming a run of four consecutive draws with the result, Stoke City will be looking to build on the win when they visit Swansea City on Tuesday.
