Jones delighted with second half performance against leaders

Stoke City twice came from behind to hold leaders Norwich City to a 2-2 draw.

Manager Nathan Jones made three changes going into the game.

Jack Butland, Ryan Shawcross and Thibaud Verlinden came in for Adam Federici, Nathan Collins and Sam Vokes who dropped to the bench.

The visitors took the lead on 24 minutes through Onel Hernandez.

Stoke hit back within two minutes of the restart through Ashley Williams with his first goal for the club.

The Canaries were back in front when Teemu Pukki scored his 28th league goal of the season on 66 minutes.

But three minutes later, Stoke levelled it through a rasping drive from full back Tom Edwards who scored his first goal for the club.

The result leaves Norwich on the cusp of promotion while Stoke are 16th.
