Jones on another home defeat

Stoke City had Joe Allen sent off early on as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Bristol City.

Manager Nathan Jones made five changes from the previous game two weeks ago.

Jack Butland returned in goal, while Tom Edwards, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Bruno Martins Indi and Badou Ndiaye came in to the starting line up.

For Ndiaye, it was his first league since the opening day of last season at Leeds.

Out went, Adam Federici, Tommy Smith., Danny Batth, Stephen Ward and Peter Etebo.

The Potters got off to the best possible start when Sam Clucas opened the scoring after just four minutes.

But on 12 minutes they were reduced to ten men when Joe Allen was shown a straight red card for a foul on Josh Brownhill.

The visitors equalised ten minutes after the restart when Famara Diedhiou headed home a Jack Hunt cross at the far post.

Seven minutes later they were in front, a similar cross from Hunt caused panic at the far post and the ball went in off the mid-riff of defender Tom Edwards.

Stoke remain bottom with just one point from their opening seven league games.

The Potters are back in action next Saturday when they head to West London to take on Brentford.
