Hughes urges Stoke to draw inspiration from West Ham revival

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says they must draw inspiration from West Ham United's revival.

Stoke remain in the relegation mix after Saturday's 1-0 loss at Manchester City, just three points off the drop zone, with Hughes urging his side to do what the Hammers have done.

"It's a strange league as everyone says," said the Potters' manager. "It's not something that's happened with so many teams concertinaed at the bottom and what it takes is a number of back-to-back wins.

"You look at West Ham. They've had four wins in a row and it's taken them somewhat out of it. That's what we need to do and I feel we have the capability of doing if we get a performance of that level."
