‘Like a new signing’ – Many Stoke City fans react as player shines in FA Cup success



Stoke City secured a spot in the FA Cup fourth round this afternoon with a 2-0 victory at home to Leyton Orient. 

The Potters, who named a relatively strong line up for the visit of their League Two opposition, opened the scoring through Tom Ince in the 43rd minute when he found the back of the net via the underside of the crossbar, tapping in from Alfie Doughty’s cross. 

Both sides had opportunities to add a second of the match in the second half, with the League Two outfit proving to be excellent competition.

Who did Stoke sign Romaine Sawyers on loan from earlier this season?

It was eventually the quality of the Championship club that shone through, as Tyrese Campbell netted a second with a minute left to play when he latched onto a through ball and slotted through the legs of Lawrence Vigouroux in the O’s goal. 

Ince was one of Stoke’s best performers throughout against Leyton Orient, proving to be well in contention for a regular starting place in the league.

The winger’s jinking runs and intelligent forward play made it difficult for the O’s to remain as compact and tough to beat as they would have liked. 

Here, we take a look at how Stoke fans have reacted on Twitter to Ince’s performance…
