Stoke City remain without a win in the Championship after they drew 2-2 with Preston yesterday evening at Deepdale.
Whilst that’s not a bad result in isolation, fans will be frustrated with how the side failed to secure a win in their third game of the season and it wasn’t the most convincing performance from Rowett’s men either.
Gary Rowett had spent big-money in the summer, bringing in a lot of experienced, proven players at this level.
However, it hasn’t quite clicked for the former Derby boss in Staffordshire yet, although he will be pleased with aspects of the performance against North End.
His side twice came from behind to get back into the game, with Peter Crouch coming on as a substitute to score, ensuring the Potters left with a point.
Yet, the supporters were not too pleased with the team or manager. Here’s how they reacted to the result on twitter…
Wake me up when you've sacked Gary

Negative:- Midfield to deep time and time again, defensively far to slow and yet another game with no win. Positive:- coming from behind twice and not letting their heads drop. Massive wake up call and need to learn a lot quicker than we are doing at the moment.
