Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says there can be no relaxing after their impressive draw at Southampton.

The result leaves the Potters in 13th place, one point off 10th but still only three points above the relegation zone.

A baffled Hughes said: “It is unusual. I don’t think I’ve experienced it as a manager or a player the fact so many teams are so close together in terms of points separating teams from the top half and the bottom half.

“This year was always going to be difficult, full of highs and lows and some disappointments and some successes.”
