Jese returns in time for Stoke City’s clash with Brighton


Stoke City face Brighton in a huge game at the bottom of the table tomrrow (Feb 10), and welcome the return of forward Jese Rodriquez.

Both sides will be looking to get that slight edge to win the game and the Potters hope Rodriquez will provide that.

The 24-year-old loanee has been out since late November.

He is on a season-long loan from French side Paris Saint Germain and did not hit the ground running in his first few appearances in red and white.

Now he will be looking to prove his potential to new manager Paul Lambert as the Bet 365 team battle to beat the drop.

The Stoke City boss believes the atmosphere and home advantage is a massive factor tomorrow (February 10) with the potential of a record-breaking attendance at the bet 365 stadium.

Lambert said: “Jese will be back in the squad.

“He’s had a bit of time off, i just thought his fitness levels were down a bit from his personal stuff but he is back.

“He played in the under 23 game and did well, so he comes back into it.

“I said when I came in we have 15 cup finals and my view has not changed.

“Whether it’s Brighton or anyone else in the league we need to get points, that’s the main objective.

“For me the good thing is we are playing well enough to go and win.

“I know how hard it will be but we are the home team and the onus is on us to probably make the running, but we are certainly playing well enough to win.”
