London: A late goal from substitute Dean Whitehead gave Stoke City their first away win of the season at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday to deny the hosts third place in the Premier League.

Whitehead picked up a cross from fellow substitute Michael Kightly, as Stoke became just the second team to win at The Hawthorns this season after champions Manchester City.

Tony Pulis' side have taken 13 points from the last five games, while for the fifth-placed West Brom it was a second setback in a few days after Wednesday night's 3-1 loss at Swansea.
