Paul Lambert enjoyed the perfect start to his career as Stoke City manager as his new side brushed aside Huddersfield Town 2-0 at a raucous bet365 stadium to move out of the Premier League relegation zone on Saturday.

Joe Allen and Mame Diouf scored the goals in the second half as Stoke, who included four changes from the side who lost at Old Trafford on Monday, won for the first time in seven games in all competitions.

Lambert was cheered ahead of kickoff and ended up doing a jig on the touchline after Allen got on the end of Eric Choupo-Moting's cross in the 53rd minute and then Diouf rounded off an intricate move on 69 minutes.

Stoke's impressive Xherdan Shaqiri also had a goal ruled out for offside as Huddersfield, who gave a first league start to new signing Alex Pritchard, slumped to a third successive league defeat.
