Stoke City 3 - 0 Maccabi Tel-Aviv

Cameron Jerome was controversially sent off as Stoke strolled to victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv at the Britannia Stadium to consolidate their position at the top of Europa League Group E.

Goals from Kenwyne Jones, Jerome and Ryan Shotton had put them firmly in the driving seat but in the 43rd minute Jerome collected a second yellow card having been harshely adjudged to have elbowed Yoav Ziv.

The Maccabi player was then shown red in a bizarre incident early in the second half and the hosts eased to three points.
