Stoke City news and transfer rumours LIVE! Potters on alert as they gear up for home Bristol City clash
Another day and along comes another pundit warning Stoke City and manager Nathan Jones of the perils they face at the bottom of the Championship table.
This time it is Sky Sports expert Andy Hinchcliffe, the former Manchester City, Everton and Sheffield Wednesday defender. The other week it was former QPR and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway. And what do both men have in common? No discernible links to the Potters.
It’s not as if Stoke boss Jones needs reminding of the predicament he is in and the dangers that lie ahead should there be no upturn in fortunes for his ailing team.
But with the club still on course to recruit a Jones associate as their new chief scout, perhaps the manager knows more about his future at Stoke than we do. And certainly a lot more than the assorted pundits who are lining up to sound Stoke’s death knell.
Next up for the Potters is a home clash with Bristol City on Saturday, followed by a tricky run of league fixtures against Brentford, Nottingham Forest, Huddersfield Town and current leaders Swansea City.
