BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) - Stoke capped a club record Premier League campaign with a 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 22nd minute through an own goal by Gareth McAuley. West Brom equalized in the 56th when Stephane Sessegnon fired a left-footed shot into the goal.

Stoke then secured victory through midfielder Charlie Adam, who scored from Glenn Whelan’s pass in the 87th.

The win leaves Stoke in ninth place and with 50 points on the season, a record tally for the club in the top flight.


West Brom remains 17th, narrowly avoiding relegation after a faltering campaign that yielded just 36 points.
