Stoke ended a run of four successive league defeats with a 2-0 home win over Swansea at the weekend, and Ryan Shotton is targeting another victory over Norwich next weekend. The 23-year-old said: "In the back of our minds we knew these two matches were going to be massive because you've got the big ones coming up. If we can do the same again next week then we're up and running again.

"You can see in the dressing room straight away. The result was a good lift for us, we've just got to carry on and kick on now, that's the important thing."
