Sunderland boss Bruce: Jones in best form I have seen

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is delighted with the recent form of Kenwyne Jones.

The 25-year-old was the subject of a number of transfer rumours during the January transfer window, with Bruce admitting at the time that interest from potential suitors had had an unsettling effect on the Trinidad and Tobago international.

However, with the transfer window now shut Bruce is pleased the influential forward is showing signs of the kind of form that made him the subject of such attention in the first place.

"The last two games he has played have been the best in my reign here," he said. "He got his goal against Wigan and he was fantastic down at Portsmouth not just as a centre forward, but also in his own box too.

"He has played well in the last two games which I'm absolutely delighted about."
