The Potters are on course for their first ever top-half finish in the Premier League as they are currently 10th in the table with 44 points from 35 matches.

Stoke, who played out a 1-1 away draw with relegation-threatened Cardiff City on Saturday, will play host to Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham before taking on West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns in their final game of the campaign.

Hughes, who was appointed as the club's manager last summer, is overjoyed with how his side have progressed, but insists that they still have work to do.

"We have been really strong in the second half of the season and I am pleased with that," he told Sky Sports.

"In the first half of the season, we had decent enough performances but found it difficult to get points on the board for whatever reasons.

"In the second half we have been better in that regards and we are pleased with how our season is ending. It is another point to our tally.

"We have got three games left, two at home, so we have a great opportunity to add to our total. All in all, it is shaping up to be a good end to the season.

"We are pleased, but we have not done it yet so we are conscious that we have three games to do it. We have to keep on going and we are not going to take our foot off the pedal."
