Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

FORMER Eng­land striker Peter Crouch came off the bench to score his 200th se­nior goal and res­cue a Cham­pi­onship point for Stoke in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Pre­ston. Paul Gal­lagher’s penalty handed the Li­ly­whites the lead at Deep­dale but Erik Pi­eters lev­elled be­fore the break.

Ire­land’s Gra­ham Burke net­ted deep in­side first-half stop­page time as Pre­ston re­gained the ad­van­tage, be­fore sub­sti­tute Crouch drew Gary Rowett’s side level af­ter half-time to sal­vage a point for the Pot­ters.
