Lawrence, a 66th-minute replacement for Stephen Pearson, took just 13 minutes to make an impact curling a first-time shot with his left foot into the unguarded net to secure only a second win in nine games for Tony Pulis’ side.

It had been a tale of two penalties at The Ricoh as Ricardo Fuller, restored to the Potters starting line-up, coverted a spot-kick he had won himself in the 55th minute to cancel out Elliott Ward’s opening goal for Coventry from the spot 12 minutes before the break.

Chris Coleman’s first home defeat since becoming Coventry boss in February saw his side dragged further into the relegation battle while the win boosts Stoke’s automatic promotion hopes.
