thumbnail Hello,

Mark Hughes guided Stoke City to a comfortable ninth-placed finish in his debut campaign at the Britannia Stadium but required a strong final third of the season in order to break from the relegation pack.

Stoke sealed just two wins in their opening 11 games and endured another dismal run over the winter period after securing one victory in 10 matches.

But an upturn in form at the start of March saw the club lose just two games until the end of the campaign to quash the prospect of dropping down into the Championship.
