Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones is prepared to fight from being a bit-part player on the bench to a regular first teamer. The 28 year old refused to criticise boss Tony Pulis' decision not to involve him on a more regular basis but is remaining positive his form will do the talking.

"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."
