Begovic: Potters fighting for top-10 finish

Tue, 01 May 08:44:44 2012

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic claims there will be no easing up as Stoke near the end of their lengthy campaign.

With 53 games already played, and little to play for other than a top-half finish, the Potters might be tempted to ease up as a memorable season reaches its final three games.

But Begovic insists there are no such thoughts at the Britannia Stadium ahead of Monday night's penultimate home Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton.

The Bosnian said: "We've got to pick up as many points as we can. The season's been great so far. Some of the performances, especially at home, have been fantastic. We want to finish well and take momentum into next season.

"You can't take your foot off the pedal. Every game has big meaning in the Premier League and this one should be a cracker. Every time we play Everton it's a good game, a tough game, and hopefully we'll be ready."

Stoke are a lowly-looking 14th in the league but have a game in hand on most of their mid-table rivals and are just six points behind eighth-placed Liverpool.
