Stoke City No2 Mark Bowen says poor recent results won't force a change of playing style.

Bowen is confident the Stoke faithful want to see the change in philosophy continue apace.

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

"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 week in, week out I think we are probably creating more chances than last year and are more pleasing on the eye.

"We believe in what we are doing and I believe the players do as well."
