Nathan Jones to return to Stoke City in the New Year



Nathan Jones will be back on the sidelines at Stoke City in February while Gary Rowett will be there in April – as much as we know anything at this stage.

Stoke have four fixtures against former managers in 2020/21 after Michael O’Neill’s predecessors landed jobs in the Championship last season – and both did well.

Jones rescued Luton from the bottom three after returning to his old club for the re-start.

Stoke head to Kenilworth Road on Saturday, October 17 (3pm) while Luton will be at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday, February 20 (3pm).

Take our Championship fixture survey

Stoke start their season at Rowett’s Millwall on Saturday, September 12 (3pm) and Millwall will be in the Potteries on Easter Monday, April 5 (3pm).

Rowett pulled Millwall up from the wrong end of the table to finish eighth last season after taking charge in October. They ended up two points outside the top six after flirting with the play-offs heading into the spring.

They are now priced 11/2 to go up while Luton are 11/1. Stoke are 15/4 fifth favourites.
