Last-gasp Charlie; SWANSEA ......3 STOKE ..............3.

CHARLIE ADAM'S spot-kick inflicted yet more stoppage time agony on Swansea.

Jonathan Walters and Stephen Ireland had given Stoke a 2-0 advantage at half-time.

But Wilfried Bony got one back before Nathan Dyer levelled and the Ivorian struck his 10th goal of the season to put Swansea in front with four minutes to go.

But the Swans, who let leads slip in the dying moments of both Europa League clashes with Kuban Krasnodar, were denied again when ref Robert Madley insisted Wayne Routledge had handled a Ryan Shawcross header and Adam made no mistake as he buried the spot-kick.

With Stoke on a winless run which now extends to eight games, the result seemed unlikely and shellshocked Swans will feel gutted to not have taken all three points after a rousing fightback.
