Jones keen to keep up with Bent

Kenwyne Jones was unrepentant after incurring the wrath of Sunderland manager Steve Bruce. Bruce was less than happy after learning that Darren Bent had handed the ball over at the Trinidad and Tobago international's request when their side was awarded a second penalty in yesterday's 5-2 Barclays Premier League victory over Wolves. Jones avoided an ear-bashing by smashing his 48th-minute spot-kick past keeper Wayne Hennessey, just as Bent had done before the break. However, while Bruce later insisted that would not happen again, Jones promised the £10million former Tottenham striker that he will not have it all his own way in the goal stakes this season. He said: "We always say that the one who wins it, takes it. Darren won the penalty and got hold of the ball, but I got to the spot first and didn't want to move. "I don't want to fall too far behind him in goals and thankfully, he handed me the ball. We both want to score as many goals as possible."
