‘We all make mistakes’ – Plenty of Stoke City fans react to Nathan Jones’ honest admission



Stoke manager Nathan Jones has said he made a mistake in substituting midfielder Ryan Woods during the Potters’ 3-1 defeat to Charlton on Saturday.

Woods was replaced by new signing Mark Duffy in the 69th-minute with the scores level at The Valley, but Charlton then scored two goals in the final 15 minutes to condemn Stoke to a second consecutive defeat.

Lyle Taylor had given Charlton an early lead in their first home match of the season, but Tom Ince then levelled the scores before break. Chuks Aneke then put the Addicks in front following Woods’ second-half departure, with Conor Gallagher sealing the three points minutes later.

Jones admitted he made an error in removing Woods from the match, but he claimed he did so in the belief it would help Stoke win the three points in an evenly poised match.

Plenty of Stoke fans responded to Jones’ comments, with many of them agreeing with the Welshman’s verdict. Other supporters also went on to applaud Jones for showing this level of honesty in defeat.
