83.58: CLOSE - SPURS. Boateng flicked Berchiche's cross from the left into the six-yard box where it just evaded Fraser-Allen.

83.35: SAVE - SIMONSEN. Maghoma's low 25-yarder forced Simonsen to tip around the post at full stretch.

81.45: Hutchins fizzed in low cross from the right that just evaded Daniels at the near post.

77.37: SAVE - ALNWICK. Pugh's cross from the left controlled and volleyed by Phillips at the right angle, Alnwick good reaction save to turn aside.

70.33: Fine cross from the right by Fraser-Allen just over Boateng at the near post.

56.01: GOAL - STOKE. Boateng left a pass fractionally short and Pericard nipped in, pushed the ball through to Tonge, left side of box, finished coolly, sidefoot past Alnwick into corner.
