Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones is enjoying his football under new manager Mark Hughes.

Jones was impressive in victory at West Ham United.

He told The Sentinel: "It was a good performance and important to get the win to go with that, more so for us because it's really showing that we can achieve a win away from home.

"Before we wouldn't have come here and played like that, actually dominating the home team and trying to win the game. We'd have played for percentages and hoped that something would come off.

"It is a different approach to take the game to West Ham. We've had the players to do that for quite a while, but you know it's a different philosophy now and things are going well.

"We have a belief now and hopefully that belief will get stronger and stronger going into the season.

"We know we are going to have ups and downs, but as a team we stand in good stead."
