Stoke City striker Bojan Krkic made his return to football after seven month with an injury.

The former Barcelona striker suffered a serious knee injury in an FA Cup match against Rochdale in January.

His return however could not inspire Stoke City as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Championship side Brentford.

The Championship side took the lead, on 32 minutes, through Andy Gogia.

 

Gogia again cut and took aim with his right-boot, the ball skimmed away from the goalkeeper folllowing a deflection by Ryan Shawcross stuck his head in the way of the strike.

Krkic was introduced in the second half but Brentford doubled their lead with 16 minutes remaining.

Stuart Dallas smashed home from a very tight angle to score Brentford's second.
