Stoke boss livid after draw with Derby

Stoke City manager Nathan Jones was left fuming after his side were held to a 2-2 by Derby County.

Nathan Jones made just the one change from the league game at Charlton the week before with James McClean replacing Stephen Ward at left back.

Stoke were caught cold early on when Martyn Waghorn gave the visitors the lead from close range inside the opening two minutes.

Joe Allen then hit a post when it looked easier to score, after Derby stopper Kelle Roos had kept out a stooping header from Sam Clucas.

The Potters eventually equalised on 32 minutes when Liam Lindsay's header from a corner was deflected in by Scott Hogan.

Tom Ince then hit the bar as the home side dominated.

If there was some doubt about who was claiming the first goal, there was not with the second.

Butland's long clearance downfield was seized upon by Lee Gregory and his cross from the right was swept home by Hogan in front of the Boothen End.

But Stoke handed Derby a way back into the game when Tommy Smith was adjudged to have brought down George Evans in the area, and Waghorn added his second from the penalty spot.

Stoke are back in action on Wednesday night when they make the trip to Preston North End.
