Mark Bowen: Assistant boss insists Stoke won't change their philosophy

Bowen believes that there is no need for Stoke fans to panic as they enter the international break hovering above the relegation zone in 16th place.

The Potters were criticised for their long-ball style of play under former boss Tony Pulis, and Bowen does not see any reason why they should revert back.

"We believe this is the right way to play football and I don't think our fans would appreciate us changing now," he told The Sentinel.

"Just because the league table doesn't make fantastic reading at the moment, we are not going to change anything.

"We know there will be some wanting us to get up and at 'em and into the box, but I think we are probably creating more chances than last year and are more pleasing on the eye."

Bowen also admitted that he regularly monitors fans' message boards to see what their opinions on the new playing stylea are.

"You do put your ear to what supporters are saying and I think the general consensus is they want more goals, as we do," he added.

"They also believe we are more entertaining and playing good football."

Stoke will be looking to end their barren run of form when West Bromwich Albion visit the Britannia Stadium on 19 October.
