Bolton Wanderers 0 - 5 Stoke City (FA Cup Semi Final)

In what can be only described as a complete battering, Stoke City managed to sweep aside a hapless Bolton Wanderers 0 - 5 at Wembley Stadium.

Two superb long range strikes by Matthew Etherington and Robert Huth opened the scoring for The Potters before Kenwyne Jones sealed the win, adding a third before the first half came to a close.

Rubbing salt into his former employers wounds, Jon Walters added a further two in the second half securing The Potters entry into the FA Cup final for the first time in their 149 year history.

After a strong season by the Wanderers, they bow out of the FA Cup in perhaps a most embarrasing fashion, forever consigned to the history books of being dealt the biggest loss in a FA Cup semi final.

Stoke City will now face Manchester City in the FA Cup final on the 14th of May, 2011 at Wembley Stadium.
