Tyrese Campbell bagged a brace as Stoke beat Huddersfield 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller.
The visitors hit the front through Carel Eiting in the 25th minute after dominating the opening exchanges.
But the Terriers hit the self destruct button as Campbell scored twice inside three minutes with the aid of some slack defending.
Huddersfield briefly drew level through Isaac Mbenza’s cool finish after 40 minutes but found themselves behind at the break after Richard Stearman turned into his own net on the stroke of half-time.
Sam Clucas extended the lead further with a moment of brilliance in the 57th minute before Naby Sarr’s header gave the Terriers hope three minutes later.
Here’s how Potters fans reflected on a tense afternoon on Twitter.
Nathan S: GO ON LADS! Great performance from Ty! Really nervy near the end but we’ll take it! On to the next!
Jordy: Defence played insane to protect joe as much as they could, must be a lot of pressure coming back into the side like that. Well played lads
Josh Ryder-Flint: fletch, ty, mikel, clucas, batth, souttar all deserve the credit. Brilliant. Couple of good saves taken well by bursik too. Things you love to see
Jonathan Quinn: I actually might have needed those extra heartbeats when I’m older so thanks for that. Nail biting!!
StokieScott: When is the Tyrese statue being made?
Jay: We normally slag defensive changes off but big up to MoN smashed it with the substitutions today. Well done MoN
Nathaniel Capes: Get in there lads, what a win today, narrowing in on the top….big game next time out lads, I know we can do it.
