Collins is satisfied with his and his club's fortunes together so far.
"We have got two draws and a couple of wins - and one of those was at Spurs, which is pleasing because season Stoke did not do too well on their travels.
"We are sitting ninth in the league with a derby against Wolves next, so we are really looking forward to building on that victory at Spurs.
"I hear (Spurs boss) Harry Redknapp was saying they could have been four up before we scored. Maybe he is right. But in the end we scored and took the points, and that will do for us."
