Stoke City boss Nathan Jones has insisted that the Potters want to put their best foot forward, and want people to be talking about them after their clash against Leeds United.

The Potters host league leaders Leeds on Saturday, and will hope to bounce back after losing three out of their last four games in the Championship and slipping down to 15th in the league table.

Jones’ arrival has not seen the club turn around their fortunes just yet as they lost to Brentford last weekend and were dumped out of the FA Cup by Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday.

The Welshman, however, has explained that there were a lot of positives from the cup defeat and says Stoke will look to improve against Leeds come Saturday.

“It is a difficult game against the league leaders”, Jones told a press conference ahead of Stoke’s meeting with Leeds.

“Leeds are a big club, so it is a big game anyway, but with everything surrounding it, it is a massive game.

“It is about what we do though – we want people to be talking about us at the end of it, for the right reasons.

“Our processes on Tuesday were better than they were on Saturday.

“Yes, we lost the game in disappointing fashion, but for the first hour there were a lot of positives.

“If we can improve again tomorrow then we will be very pleased.”

Stoke's last win came in the penultimate weekend of December when they beat Millwall, and the home fans will hope their team can turn their season around against the league leaders.
