​Yellow card finally awarded to correct Stoke player!

The yellow card mistakenly awarded to Stoke's Erik Pieters has been transferred to team-mate Bruno Martins Indi.

Referee Craig Pawson waved the last of the nine cards he brandished during the 2-2 draw with Leicester at Pieters for a challenge on Foxes defender Danny Simpson.

On Tuesday Stoke tweeted: "Erik Pieters' yellow card picked up against @LCFC has been transferred to Bruno Martins Indi in a case of mistaken identity."
