STOKE CITY were cruelly denied of a deserved three points against Everton on New Year's Day as England international Leighton Baines struck home a stoppage time penalty to earn the Toffees a point.

The Potters looked to be firmly on course to secure a fourth consecutive home victory thanks to Oussama Assaidi's fourth goal of the campaign shortly after the half-time interval.

However, a mistimed challenge from substitute Jermaine Pennant presented Baines with a glorious opportunity to level matters for his side, and he calmly dispatched his spot-kick to beat debutant Jack Butland and break the hearts of the home side.

Truth be told, the result was arguably a fair reflection of the game with Roberto Martinez's side ruing the woodwork for denying Kevin Mirallas on two separate occasions prior to the break.

That said, several opportunities came and went for the hosts too, with both Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam feeling aggrieved not to have found themselves on the score-sheet when a second goal would have undoubtedly killed off the Champions League hopefuls.
