Stoke, England: Jonathan Walters headed in a 76th-minute winner as Stoke came from behind to beat Swansea 2-1 on Sunday and earn back-to-back home victories in the Premier League.

   

With the game tied at 1-1 after two first-half penalties, the Ireland forward met Oussama Assaidi's left-wing cross with a thumping header from 10 meters at Britannia Stadium.
   
Swansea took the lead in the 34th minute through Wilfried Bony, who converted his spot kick after being wrestled to the ground by Ryan Shawcross as they jostled at a corner.
   
Charlie Adam equalized with a 42nd-minute penalty, awarded when Nigeria winger Victor Moses tumbled under a challenge by Angel Rangel. Swansea manager Garry Monk said it was a blatant dive by Moses.
   
"The player should be ashamed," Monk said. "I would not be able to go home to my family and show my face . for me it is a disgrace; he should be punished heavily for that.
   
"If my player had done that, he would not play in the next game." After winning its first three games, Swansea is without a victory in five league games.
