Stoke City 2-0 Fulham: Tyrese Campbell scores first league goal in Potters victory

Stoke City moved off the bottom of the Championship as Tyrese Campbell's first league goal for the Potters helped them to a home victory over Fulham.

The 19-year-old, who scored twice for the Potters in the FA Cup last season, coolly slotted in after latching on to Lee Gregory's flick-on.

Gregory then made it 2-0 with a late penalty as Stoke earned back-to-back wins under Nathan Jones for the first time.

The visitors dominated possession and pushed for an equaliser after the break, but Bobby Decordova-Reid headed their best chance straight at Adam Federici.

Fulham were made to pay for their lack of creativity when Scott Hogan was brought down by goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli 10 minutes from full-time and Gregory converted the spot-kick.

Barnsley's 1-1 draw with Swansea, who Jones' side beat before the international break, drops the Tykes to the foot of the table, while Stoke move up a place, within two points of safety.

The Potters were good value for their first home win since March, with Joe Allen and Campbell also going close before the break.

They now face two games away from home, against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday and against Millwall at The Den next Saturday.

Campbell, the son of former Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, took his tally of career goals into double figures, having also scored twice for Stoke Under-21s in the EFL Trophy and five times last season with Shrewsbury Town, who he joined on loan after netting twice against them in the FA Cup.

Stoke City manager Nathan Jones told BBC Radio Stoke:

"I'm very proud of the group and the fans were outstanding again. They have been through a tough time. They have had to be patient.

"We were brilliant. We are starting to get some continuity. We now have a fully-fit squad which at times is difficult.

"We scored two, but, on chances and clear-cut chances, we could have scored more."

Fulham manager Scott Parker:

"We'll dust ourselves down. This a young squad which has been put together and along the way there's going to be a few bumps.

"It's not a head-on collision, not something which is a real massive issue, but it's a bump, which is going to happen. It's one football match and we have to go again.

"How we bounce back from this will ultimately determine how we do this year. That's the challenge now, we have to come back fighting. That's the only thing you can do."
