Stoke boss Hughes targets 40 points barrier today

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes hopes for victory over Hull City as he targets the 40 points mark.

The Potters meet Hull later tonight.

"If we do that we would be ahead of where we thought we would be," Hughes admitted.

"Then we would have six games to really kick on and see how far we could get.

"Psychologically, you need to get over the line and then in the games ahead there's a feeling the pressure is off, relax in your play and perform well.

"There was a feeling of that at Villa last week after we got a result against West Ham. That helped us to relax and play as well as we did."
