Jones has outside Spurs chance

Published Add your comment

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has confirmed Kenwyne Jones could be available to play against Tottenham at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

Jones, who joined the Potters earlier this month for a club record fee, limped off with an ankle problem barely 10 minutes into their Barclays Premier League opener at Wolves last weekend, prompting fears he might be facing an extended spell on the sidelines.

However, a series of scans and X-rays showed the striker had suffered only minor ligament damage, and Pulis said: "He is much better. I went running with him and managed to stay up with him, so he is still not as fit as he should be! But we are very pleased that it is not a serious injury."

Asked if Saturday's game might be too early for Jones, Pulis added: "I'm not sure. He ran yesterday (Wednesday) and we were pleased - if he gets a reaction today, that will push him back a bit.

"But if there is no reaction then hopefully he can do a little bit more today and tomorrow, and he's got an outside chance."
