Stoke boss on first win

Stoke City beat Championship leaders Leeds United 2-1.

Manager Nathan Jones caught out his opposite by changing tactics for the game.

He went with a different formation employing three centre backs in skipper Ryan Shawcross, Ashley Williams and Bruno Martins Indi.

Charlie Adam started his first league game since March while Moritz Bauer also started in a right wing back role.

Sam Clucas, who was operating as left wing back, opened the scoring just after half time.

The visitors were then reduced to ten men when Pontus Jansson was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Jack Butland then kept his side in the game with a stunning save to keep out a Luke Ayling header.

Joe Allen then added a second for Stoke in the last two minutes, before scored a consolation through Ezgjan Alioski with the last kick off the game.

Stoke are 15th in the table, eight points off the play-off places.

They are back in action on Saturday when they entertain Preston.
