A second-half brace by winger George Reid, allows Stoke to come from behind to win 3-2 in the latest pre-season friendly.
Stoke took the lead mid-way through the first-half through a neat Connor Lynch finish, only for a mix-up at the back a few minutes later, which allowed Sholing to equalise. Sholing then took the lead through an unchallenged header from a corner and went into the break with a 1-2 lead.
Stoke made a number of expected changes at half-time, which initially failed to make any difference against a solid Sholing defence, but then a Bradley Wilson sweetly timed through pass to George Reid allows him to slot the ball past the visiting keeper to tie the game up.
This equaliser seemed to re-energise the Stoke side, who started to build attack after attack, which finally led to another timely pass to Reid, who took two touches before slotting the ball pass past the Sholing keeper from an acute angle into the far cormer of the goal to take the lead and the eventual winner, in an exciting home 3-2 victory.
