Stoke: Robert Huth scored his first goal of the season as Stoke ended their wait for a first league win of 2013 by beating visitors Reading 2-1 on Saturday.

The hosts, who had not won in the Premier League since December 26, controlled the game from the start, but had to wait until the 67th-minute for German defender Huth to nod them in front from a Glenn Whelan corner.

Substitute Cameron Jerome doubled the lead after 81 minutes when the striker took the ball down neatly and turned his marker before smashing the ball home.
