Stoke City 3-0 Portsmouth

Jon Walters scores for Sunderland
Stoke City will now face Sunderland in round three

Jon Walters scored a goal in each half as Stoke City comfortably saw off League Two side Portsmouth in the Capital One Cup.

The Republic of Ireland international met Marc Muniesa's cross at the near post to steer the Potters ahead.

Walters made the game safe at the start of the second half when he tapped in Victor Moses' excellent pullback.

Peter Crouch added a third in the final minute with a powerful header from a fine Walters cross.

Moses, making his debut on loan from Chelsea, had two efforts saved by Paul Jones in an impressive display, while Crouch could have had more goals in a much-changed Stoke XI.

Pompey - who made eight changes of their own - saw their best effort turned away by stand-in goalkeeper Jack Butland, with the England international saving Andy Barcham's shot.

Stoke now face Sunderland in round three.
