Adam: Stoke players embracing Lambert demands

Charlie Adam is convinced Stoke City are on the right track under new manager Paul Lambert.

The midfield veteran, who played a significant role in Paul Lambert's debut win as Stoke City boss, believes the 11-day gap between the two games can only benefit manager and players alike.

“We will have time to work and get ready for the Watford match," said the former Scottish international.

“I think it will help the manager because we've got time together to work on patterns and structure and will be a better team against Watford.

“The previous manager has done a great job, but we let him down as a group of players from the start of the season until now.

“The new manager has come in and set his stall out. He wants high pressing football and this break will be good because we've got time to work together and hopefully by the Watford game we will be a better team."
