Orlando City 0
Stoke City 1 (Walters 45)
21:33: The full-time whistle goes and Jonathan Walters' second goal in as many games is enough to secure the Potters a second pre-season victory. From here, it's across country to Kansas tomorrow morning ahead of a clash at the Livestrong Arena against Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday evening.
90: Four minutes of stoppage time have been signalled by the fourth official.
89: A sublime piece of skill from Jones in the middle of the pitch then to lose his marker, however, his ball out wide wasn't as impressive as he fails to pick out Ness.
85: Sorensen has been by far the busier of the two 'keepers this half, as he is again forced to deny George Davies and Charlie Campbell. Orlando have impressed me this evening, but you can't fault the effort of the Stoke players, especially having been working three sessions a day for the best part of the last 17 days.
81: Jones bursts down the left and fires a rasping effort towards goal; thankfully for Orlando though, Gallardo is on hand to save well.
80: Wilson is off now and Ness is on for his second stint. Not sure whether it is an injury or not.
74: Ustruck bursts through on goal, but rather than dinking the ball over the advancing Sorensen, he attempts to slip the ball past him, but the Dane is one step ahead and reads him to pull off a good save.
72: Jerome has limped off with what appears to be a strain, and Shotton has come back on as his replacement as all the subs have already been made. The ref initially refused him permission, but after a pep talk from Orlando coach Adrian Heath, common sense prevailed and the Potters can continue with ten players.
70: He does make his entrance after a few minutes waiting on the sidelines. His arrival comes seconds after Erik Ustruck wastes a golden opportunity of levelling matters for Orlando.
68: John Rooney, the brother of Manchester United and England ace Wayne, is about to come on for the Lions.
65: Another yellow card flashed by the card happy referee, this time to an Orlando player for a rather low key challenge. There wasn't much in that but still he shows him the yellow.
63: 10,441 is the attendance here this evening. A very impressive turnout for the USL side.
61: Arismendi was about to come on for Whelan, however, Shotton is now the guy to make way for him. Very bizarre decision from the referee. The locals are pleased though.
60: Wow, Whelan is sent off by the referee, and I really didn't see what for. He got booked for a clumsy challenge, and then I can only imagine that he said something to the referee in the aftermath of the incident, which prompted the red card.
57: Another strike on target for Orlando, but again Sorensen comfortably gathers.
55: Another trio of changes for the Potters with Crouch, Walters and Huth making way for Jones, Jerome and Higginbotham.
52: Kyle Davies rises highest inside the Potters danger zone to meet Lopez's centre, but he can't manage to divert his effort on goal. A let off for Stoke.
49: Palacios, Ness and Etherington off, Upson, Whitehead and Tonge all come on.
46: The hosts get the second half back underway. The sun has gone down now, but temperatures are still currently in the low 90s.
45: GOAL!!! Jonathan Walters exquisitely volleys home into the far corner of the net following a Crouch flick on from Wilson's dangerous cross field ball. A super strike for the Irish international.
43: Huth is the second player of the evening to be cautioned for a professional foul on Molino, moments before the striker picks himself up and fires over the bar from 12-yards.
39: Walters was a little wasteful in possession there as he floats a ball across from the right flank, however, his cross evades the packed out penalty area and floats out for a goal-kick.
37: Shotton goes down under a heavy challenge from Jean Alexandre, who is shown a yellow card in the process by the referee.
34: A superb challenge by Mechalk to deny Walters with what would have certainly been the opening goal of the game.
31: The game has gone a little bit sloppy at the moment, though I guess that is understandable given the heat, and the fact that Orlando played last night, whilst our lads were up training at 6:30am this morning.
27: Orlando will still be jubilant following their 4-0 victory against Charleston Battery last night, which was enough to clinch them the USL title. They now go into a double header play-off in the next few weeks. Good luck to them in that.
23: Crouch and Walters link up well to free Ness inside the danger zone, but he isn't able to control his volley, and lashed it harmlessly over the bar.
19 mins: A goalmouth scramble in the Potters 10-yard box; but thankfully Huth is there to clear the danger.
15 mins: It's been a really entertaining affair thus far with both sides having chances to take the lead. I will stick my neck on the line and say this will not be a goalless draw.
12 mins: Whelan rifles a 30-yard free-kick goal-wards, and Gallardo acrobatically dives to his right to pull off a relatively comfortable save.
9 mins: Another half chance for the hosts, but this time Kevin Morlino is the guilty party as he stabs wide from 12-yards, when he really should have at least hit the target.
7 mins: At the other end, Shawcross does well to block Luke Boden's strike, before Rodrigo Lopez forces Sorensen into a smart save down to his right. A lively opening few minutes here.
6 mins: The first opportunity of the evening goes to Stoke, and Etherington fires straight into the palms of Miguel Gallardo from 8-yards after Walters cleverly frees him inside the box.
3 mins: The atmosphere is really good at the moment with both Orlando and Stoke supporters making lots of noise.
2 mins: Stoke attacking down to the right with Walters and Shotton linking up well, however, the move comes to nothing.
19:38: Peter Crouch and Jonathan Walters get the action underway! Come on you Potters!
19:37: The national anthems have just taken place, and the lads are now on the field ready for kick-off. Great atmosphere here!
