Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington says they must get back into the top ten.

Etherington believes the Potters owe it to themselves to get back there.

"We've got to finish this season strongly," the former Tottenham player told the club's official website.

"We deserve to finish in the top 10, I don't think anyone can argue with that.

"We missed out last season, but if we can make sure this time around, then I think you can say it's been a successful campaign."
