Stoke City No2 Dave Kemp says they're happy with the form of Cameron Jerome.

For the draw with Wigan Athletic, Jerome won the penalty that led to Stoke's equaliser - and the sending off of Gary Caldwell - and then grabbed his first goal for the club, only for Wigan to then level themselves through Ben Watson's 87th-minute spot-kick.

"He made the impact we wanted, he caused some problems and obviously the goal was a bonus," said Kemp.

"Unfortunately he had a similar opportunity (in the closing minutes) and had a heavy touch that took it away from him, or he may have scored another one."
