Danny Rose headed home following Emmanuel Adebayor's cross from the right in the 32nd minute in what proved to be the game's only goal.
Stoke's Ryan Shawcross was sent off for a second bookable offence seven minutes into the second half, with both sides having chances as the game went on.
Utlimately, though, we did enough to claim all three points.
