Carlos Vela came off the bench at the Britannia Stadium last night to rescue a point for West Brom with three minutes left.
Rory Delap gave Stoke the lead just after half-time when he headed home in the six-yard box from a Jermaine Pennant corner.
But Vela, on the pitch just two minutes, took down Steven Reid's cross inside the six-yard box and tapped home to lift Albion out of the relegation zone. The Mexican had a last-gasp chance saved by Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic.
