Stoke City frontman Kenwyne Jones wants the side to start taking control of fixtures following their 2-1 win over Newcastle United on Sunday.
Jones was pleased that the team turned the fixture on its head, but he wants to see the performance show from the first whistle.
“I think it’s a bad habit we need to kick,” he said.
“All of the games this season we didn’t start so good in the first half and have had to come on in the second half and try and pull off a victory.
“Hopefully we’ll discontinue this habit and start winning the first half.
“The crosses keep coming in and I’m on hand to put them in. Thankfully it’s been happening consistently and I hope that continues.”
