STOKE, England (AP) - Danny Rose was the central figure as Tottenham beat 10-man Stoke 1-0 Saturday to win its first away game for more than two months.

The defender scored his first Premier League goal of the season in the 33rd minute after Emmanuel Adebayor beat Glenn Whelan on the right of the area before sending in a perfect cross for Rose, who headed past Asmir Begovic.

Rose was then caught on the shin by Ryan Shawcross to earn the Stoke captain a second yellow card seven minutes after the break at the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke responded well but was unable to find an equalizer and slipped to only a third home defeat this season.

Tottenham remains sixth with 66 points while Stoke is provisionally 10th with 44. Both have two games left.
