Jones awaits his opportunity

Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones remains confident he can break into Tony Pulis' starting line-up and not be pigeon-holed as a bit-part player.

Kenwyne Jones: Hoping for a starting place

Kenwyne Jones: Hoping for a starting place

The 28-year-old impressed from the bench in last weekend's 1-0 Premier League win over QPR but has not started a game for the Potters since the home draw against Everton in May.

Jones refused to criticise boss Pulis' decision not to involve him on a more regular basis but is remaining positive he will catch his manager's eye and earn more time on the pitch.

"I guess the manager knows what his plans are for the season, so all I can do is just keep doing what I am doing. Hopefully that will warrant some sort of reward before the season ends," Jones said.

"I can only do what I can. There are quite a few players in that position and we are all working hard to try to get that place.

"Whether or not we get it is a different story, but every day we are going to keep working and keep grinding away to try to make ourselves and the team better."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
