GALLERY: Stevenage's valiant FA Cup run finally came to an end at Stoke on Sunday afternoon - as they bowed out to the Potters 3-1

Despite going a goal down after only three minutes, following Jacob Brown slotting home from close range to put the Potters ahead in front of a crowd of 14,392 - including 3,291 from North Herts - Stevenage rallied to level.

Boro's No19 Jamie Reid equalised with only 20 minutes remaining when he found himself in space in the box to lift the ball over onrushing Stoke keeper Jack Bonham to make the score 1-1.

With even Stoke boss Alex Neil admitting after the match that Stevenage's 2-1 giant-killing result at Premier League Aston Villa in the previous round played on his mind, the Potters went ahead only three minutes later.

Stoke captain Josh Laurent put the home side 2-1 up with a thunderbolt as the tie erupted into life with two goals in 180 seconds, prior to a late penalty, when substitute Lewis Baker slotted home his spot-kick to make the final score 3-1 to Stoke.
