Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has praised his side for setting a new record points total in the Premier League with their 0-0 draw at Burnley.
The Potters have moved onto 51 points, one better than they managed last season, and will finish in the top half for the second successive campaign.
Hughes told BBC Sport: "It's a great effort from everybody, and its been more difficult this year than last - with long-term injuries and everything.
"The group itself has been really strong, and that strength in depth and character has enabled us to achieve another top-half finish.
"We haven't been in the [transfer] market or spent a great deal of money, so that's credit to our recruitment department. Everyone's had an impact for us since they've come to the club. We're delighted with that. It's been a long season and we're looking forward to the last game."
Stoke face Liverpool in the final game of their season next weekend.
