Stoke in the Europa League.

Despite Tony Pulis being uncertain if Kyiv was even in Europe,he coached a slightly under strength Potters side to the brink of victory with yet another text book execution of the "Stoke City way".

Hard on the heels of a couple of "shots poor,points rich" performances against WBA and Liverpool his side came within two minutes of claiming a fifth successive Europa League victory.Cameron Jerome,the lowest keyed  of the three money signings during the transfer window scored a 55th minute go ahead goal,worth an EP of just over 1,but Vukojevic's 91st minute equaliser grabbed all that back and more.Kyiv spent the last 2 minutes as slight favourites,a position they justified with a sustained bout of late pressure.

But 76% possession,90% of the shots and a 4.5 to 1 on target shot ratio in their favour wasn't enough to seal victory for the home side.

Dynamo Kyiv 1-1 Stoke City.

0-1 Jerome,55'
1-1 Vukojevic,91'
