West Brom fullback Jones: Clarke just like Hodgson

West Bromwich Albion fullback Billy Jones has likened manager Steve Clarke to England coach Roy Hodgson.

The managerial rookie has worked ­wonders since replacing Hodgson, who left The Hawthorns to take charge of the Three Lions last summer.

Right-back Jones said: "The gaffer is great - very similar to Roy.

"Roy is always very organised and we always went into a game with a game plan, and that is very much the same with the gaffer now.

"And more often than not, when we do that and perform to our abilities, we ­usually end up winning.

"They've both been massive and I feel like I've improved under the new gaffer this year."
