Stoke City defender Andy Wilkinson wants his side to beat Everton at Goodison Park this Saturday, as they look at making a top 10 finish in the Premier League.
Tony Pulis’ men have proved to be a formidable unit at their own backyard this season, but have struggled miserably to chalk out points away from home. They have only managed a single win in their last 24 matches on the road.
The Staffordshire-based club currently sit eleventh in the Premier League table and with the season now drawing to a conclusion, Wilkinson observed that his team must start collecting points from their visits away from the Britannia.
The 28-year-old called upon his team-mates to get a positive result when they make a trip to Goodison Park this Saturday.
Wilkinson told reporters: "The dressing room doesn't feel like that so we can be positive for Saturday and hopefully go for the result.
"There have been things that haven't gone our way, but that is football and they even themselves out over the season.
"We just need to put it to bed and get the win this weekend."
Two of Stoke’s remaining eight games are against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Any slip-ups could drag them into a relegation battle, as they are only seven points above the drop zone.
However, Wilkinson was optimistic the Potters would finish their campaign on a high, eyeing a finish in the table half of the table.
He added: “Our aim is to finish in the top ten. It's important we just keep getting good results, go from there and not worry about who is behind us.
