Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones has come into criticism for some of his performances of late.

But four goals in his last four games for the Potters seems to have got the proverbial 'monkey' off his back, with his return to form prompting his name to ring loud and proud at the Britannia stadium once more.

Jones' strike partner Jonathan Walters says the Trinidad and Tobago international's ability was 'never in any doubt'.

"Kenwyne is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and he has shown that this season for us," he said.

Walters is pleased to see the 26-year-old star firing on all cylinders again – even if he has been caught in the race to be Stoke's top goalscorer this season.


 

"Everyone goes through good and bad patches but Kenwyne is riding on the crest of a wave at the moment.

"Let's hope that continues until the end of the season. He is unplayable when he is in this sort of form."

Fresh from their 0-3 victory over relegation strugglers Wolves at Molineux on Tuesday night, Stoke moved up to ninth in the Barclays Premier League table.

The focus now turns to an away trip to Blackpool at the weekend before a home fixture against Arsenal.

After that comes the biggest game in the club's recent history as Stoke prepare to face Manchester City in an FA Cup final showdown at Wembley.

"It would be a remarkable achievement to finish in the top 10 and pick up more points than the 47 that were accumulated last season," Walters concluded.

"Together with reaching an FA Cup Final, that would cap an unbelievable year for us."
