Images from Stoke City's 3-3 draw at the Liberty Stadium

CHARLIE ADAM’S stoppage time penalty rescued Stoke City a point from an exhilarating encounter at the Liberty Stadium.

The Scotland international displayed incredible composure to stroke the ball home under intense pressure after his side looked to have surrendered the point that they deserved in South Wales.

First half strikes from Jonathan Walters and Stephen Ireland sent the visitors into the half-time interval in complete control, however, a sterling second half comeback, thanks to a brace from Wilfried Bony and a fortuitous Nathan Dyer effort, appeared to have earned the hosts all three points.

Deep into stoppage time though the referee awarded the visitors a lifeline following an apparent handball inside the box by Wayne Routledge.

Adam displaying pure brilliance from the spot to send the travelling 600 Stoke supporters into delirium behind the goal, and elevate the Potters out of the bottom three, at Fulham’s expense.
