John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield.
John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield.

Schofield: Stayed alert to tip over a dangerous inswinging corner in the first half from Thompson which almost crept in. Little to do in second half. 6

Pipa: Needed no second invitation to get forward, with his confidence emboldened by his early deflected opener. A regular outlet for Town 7

Keogh: Fraught first half in which he gifted possession needlessly several times, including in the build-up to Stoke’s leveller. A bit easier in the second half with Stoke a man light. 4

Sarr: Penalised for bringing down Clarke with a stretching leg and it looked the right call. 5

Toffolo: Surged forward when the chance arose and put in a few cracking crosses from the left. 7

Vallejo: Stroked the ball around with authority and composed and eye-catching at times. Off beam with a good second-half chance. 7

O’Brien: Some trademark bursts as he seeks to get back to his top form. Oh so close with a second half drive which hit the woodwork. 6

Bacuna: On the receiving end of Norrington-Davies’s red card challenge before the break. Denied a second half goal by a great block close to the goalline from McClean. 6

Mbenza: Up against a decent marker in Norrington-Davies and had McClean for company in the second half. No doubting his effort, but not too much came off. 6

Campbell: Close with a downward header in the first half. Slugged it out with Stoke’s powerhouse centre-backs. 6

Aarons: Industry could not be knocked, but did not get too much joy out of the highly-rated Collins. 5

Substitutes: Holmes (Aarons 59). Thrown on for a second debut as Town pushed in the second period with a man advantage. 6

Phillips (Keogh 77). Entered the fray as Town pushed for a winner. 6

Pritchard (Mbenza 85).

Not used: Pereira, Duhaney, Crichlow, J Brown, Jones, High.
