Stoke eased into the Capital One Cup semi-finals as goals from Ibrahim Afellay and substitute Phil Bardsley secured a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Afellay put the Potters ahead in the 30th minute, the summer signing registering his first goal for the club with a delightfully-executed volley.

Bardsley then smashed home a low effort from outside the box in the 75th minute - also opening his Potters goalscoring account - to seal what will be Stoke's first League Cup semi-final appearance since 1971-72, the year they raised the trophy.
