Etebo Subbed On As Stoke City Lose At Home; ‎Aluko Features In Reading’s Draw At Blackburn

By Johnny Edward:

Oghenekaro Etebo made his fourth English Championship appearance for ten-man Stoke City who lost 3-0 at home to Wigan Athletic on Wednesday reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Loanee defender from Everton, Ashley Williams, was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 78th minute of the defeat.

The Nigerian international came on for Darren Fletcher in the 62nd ‎minute of the match for his third substitute appearance of the campaign.


Will Grigg scored twice either side of Gavin Massey’s strike to hand the Lactics their first win of the season.

For Etebo’s Stoke City it was a fourth game without a win in the Championship. They host Hull City on Saturday, and Gary Rowett will need a big response from his charges.

At Ewood Park, Sone Aluko returned to the starting line-up of Reading after missing two league games in their 2-2 draw at Blackburn Rovers.

Reading squandered two-goal lead, conceding two penalties in the 51st and 76th minute which Charles Mulgrew converted for Blackburn to earn a share of the spoil.

Nigeria international, Aluko played for 63 minutes before he was replaced by Josh Sims for his second appearance of the season for Reading.

    Wasting your time with this improper team

  • I cant phantom what you are doing a club that is destined to failures and strugglings. You should have waited until after world cup to move but you rushed yourself and see your life!

    Etebo must have thought that Stoke would do a Newcastle and breeze through to premiership promotion at the first time of asking. Well he better be prepared to stay in the championship for a a while with Stoke as they clearly haven’t got their acts together.

    On the other hand, even though this move is baffling, let’s not forget that before the world cup, Etebo wasn’t first choice with some ignorant fans even suggesting him for the chop. Well the England game exposed Rohr’s corrupt practices, with Onazi and Joel Obi showing the world they were not world cup material and Onazi duly cemented his spot.

    I think it was a risk worth taking for Etebo. With strong performances for Stoke and Nigeria, he should get back to the top flight.

    • Haymaking Loony, guess what? I did exactly what you said, hugged a transformer, battled the gods but contrary to your prediction, destruction failed to come my way.
      But I am back, back to pour fire and brimstone on your wretched excuse of a a head.
      You see, you called me a prostitute because all what your dirty, disgusting maggot infested mind can link my online alias to is a prostitute (on that note, did you pay the one you slept with last night? fool!).
      Let me give you an assignment, go to Google, type Ashy Slashy then go on to images. I wish the images that present themselves to you haunt you day and night until you end up in a mental asylum where you rightly belong.

      Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first made mad. Haymaker, the gods have surely made you mad.

  • People questioning his decision to join the club. Did you read the news at all? what has been his performance since he joined? he is not bigger than the club judging by his performances. Third 3rd appearance from the bench’ means he is not even in the first eleven mttchhhew.
