Yorke fires Jones warning

08 Jun 2008 - 16:17:17

Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones has been urged to score more goals by Black Cats team-mate Dwight Yorke.

Trinidad & Tobago international Jones netted just seven goals for the Black Cats in his first season on Wearside and his club and international colleague, Yorke, feels he needs to do more.

He told the Star on Sunday: "People have talked about him being the new Didier Drogba, but you don't earn that type of reputation after one season in the Premier League and you've scored only seven goals.

"Seven goals isn't good enough. Drogba scores 20-plus goals every season and that is what Kenwyne has to do.

"Until he starts doing that he shouldn't start getting carried away with himself.

"Seven goals is an extremely poor season and if you are talking about a top striker and someone fulfilling obvious potential, and you have people around him ranting and raving about him, he needs to do a lot better."

Jones is currently awaiting scan results on a knee injury suffered during his country's recent 3-0 friendly defeat by England.
