Stoke City have played their first friendly at their Austrian training camp and beaten their hosts, Bad Aussee, by two goals to one.

Two goals in three minutes from Vincent Pericard and Anthony Pulis saved the Potters from any embarrassment after the home team had gone into the lead after 24 minutes.

But friendly relations were briefly forgotten when Clint Hill had a minor tangle with a Bad Aussee striker and the referee ‘invited’ both players to have an early shower.

Steve Simonsen made hte win secure in the final minute when he saved a penalty.
