Bony’s brace end drought, sink for­mer club

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Lon­don: Ivory Coast striker Wil­fried Bony ended a 10-month goal drought with a brace against for­mer club Swansea City as Stoke City’s re­vival con­tin­ued with a 3-1 win in Mon­day’s Pre­mier League clash. Both goals for the 27-year-old Manch­ester City loa­nee were set up by an­other for­mer Swansea favourite, Joe Allen, with Al­fie Maw­son also putting through his own net as Stoke claimed a third win on the bounce. Swansea, who had lev­elled in the first half through Wayne Rout­ledge, have made their worst start to a Pre­mier League sea­son with just five points from 10 matches. It is also the first time they have gone nine games with­out a win. Stoke are un­beaten in five matches and climb to 12th, five points clear of the rel­e­ga­tion zone, while Swansea are sec­ond from bot­tom and five points adrift of safety.-AFP
