And Jones, who arrived in January after a successful stint at Luton, expects a decision to be made about his future if results don’t improve.
Jones told Sky Sports: ‘If results don’t improve, I fully expect a decision to be made on my future. I fully expect it and I have no argument about it, absolutely not.
‘If I’m honest, if this wasn’t such the club that it was, and has the owners it has, I would’ve been gone a while ago because my results haven’t been good enough and I know that.
Stoke are without a win in the Championship after Friday’s hom defeat by Nottingham Forest
‘I’m under no illusions, just as I knew in my previous job I was not untouchable, but, I was in a very secure position because my win rate was 55 per cent and we’d been promoted and we’d changed everything about it.
‘We’ve changed a lot here but we haven’t got results and that’s the be-all and end-all. So trust me, I fully expect if I don’t get results in the next few games that a decision will be made on my future.’
Huddersfield are the only other team in the league without a win and have already sacked their manager Jan Siewert to bring in Danny Cowley from Lincoln..
