Saido Berahino and Chris Brunt scored as West Bromwich Albion hit back to beat Stoke City 2-1 and go joint top of Premier League 2 Division 2.

The pair were two of seven senior players in the Baggies side, with James Morrison, Hal Robson-Kanu, Brendan Galloway, Jonathan Leko and Sam Field also playing at The Hawthorns.

Stoke fielded Charlie Adam, Marc Muniesa and Ramadan Sobhi, the latter of whom set up Julien Ngoy's opening goal.

But Berahino and Brunt struck in a three-minute spell to put the Baggies level on points with Swansea City at the top of the table.
