Bojan scores the only goal as Stoke City upends Leicester City

LEICESTER, England (AP) — Bojan Krkic brought Leicester's mini-revival to a halt Saturday, giving visitors Stoke a 1-0 Premier League victory with a moment of magic in an otherwise tame Midlands derby.

The Spaniard scored his fourth goal of the season in the 63rd minute to end the Foxes' four-match unbeaten run as Nigel Pearson's side remained bottom.

For Mark Hughes' Potters, after losing 3-0 at Arsenal a week ago, the win was the perfect tonic, particularly after losing skipper Ryan Shawcross to injury ahead of the game.

Midtable Stoke made the breakthrough after Jonathan Walters set up Bojan. With his back to goal there was still work to do, but Bojan took one touch with his right foot, turned and with his left drilled a 17-yarder past Ben Hamer.
