Stoke City boss Tony Pulis admits it may be difficult for the club to improve further next season.

The Potters have had a fantastic season, with the potential to finish eighth alongside their place in Europe after an FA Cup final appearance at Wembley against Manchester City.

"To get to the final of the FA Cup, we could finish eighth and to be in Europe, it's not too bad," Pulis told BBC Radio Stoke.

"I don't know where we kick on from there, unless we're going to get into the Champions League. You just try to improve in small steps, but we've had massive steps this year. It's been a wonderful season."

Wigan Athletic visit the Britannia Staidum this weekend knowing that nothing less than victory could see them go down, but Pulis won't be taking it easy on Roberto Mancini's side.


Whilst the Potters have been assured of top flight football for some time, the manager is eager for his team to finish on a high and will want only be thinking of victory on the final day.

"The game is big enough for the supporters to come along because it will be a competitive game," said Pulis.

"We'll be desperate to win, obviously they're desperate to win, so it should be a cracking match. We've got to make sure that we finish on a high to make everybody go away and recognise that it has been a quite remarkable season for this football club."
