Aussie midfielder Robert Stambolziev is trialling with Stoke City.

Stambolziev was on the scoresheet in Stoke's 6-0 victory over Newcastle Town last night.

The left-sided midfielder is tied to Panathinaikos and is hopeful of winning a contract at Stoke.

The Whittlesea-raised youngster came through the youth system at Bristol City.

In last night's friendly, Kenwyne Jones added a brace while Jermaine Pennant, Glenn Whelan and Jonathan Walters got the others.
