Stoke City forward Jacob Brown has taken to Instagram to share a message with the club’s supporters following his side’s latest display in the Championship.
The 23-year-old helped his side seal all three points in their showdown with Millwall yesterday by scoring at the bet365 Stadium.
Brown gave Stoke the lead in the 19th minute as he headed home from Lewis Baker’s corner.
Following the break, Baker and Mario Vrancic both missed the target with efforts as the Potters pushed for a second goal.
Brown was then denied by the woodwork as he failed to convert from close range.
Stoke finally extended their advantage in the 70th minute as George Saville diverted Baker’s cross into his own net.
Millwall squandered an opportunity to get back into the game when Tom Bradshaw was brought down in the penalty area as Jed Wallace’s spot-kick was saved by Jack Bonham.
As a result of this victory, Stoke moved up to 15th in the Championship standings.
Reflecting on his side’s latest triumph on Instagram, Brown has admitted that it was a much-needed win for the Potters.

When you consider that Stoke failed to win any of their previous nine games in all competitions heading into this fixture, their fans would have been fearing the worst yesterday.
However, the Potters managed to step up to the mark as they produced a promising display against Millwall.
Although Brown may feel as if he should have scored more than one goal against the Lions, his overall performance was very impressive.
The forward won four aerial duels and completed two successful dribbles as he recorded a WhoScored match rating of 7.89.
By building on this display following the international break, Brown could potentially help Stoke end the current campaign on a high note in the Championship.
With his side set to take on Sheffield United on April 2nd, it will be intriguing to see whether the forward is able to add to the 11 goals that he has already scored this season in this particular fixture.
