Stoke boss Tony Pulis has warned winger Jermaine Pennant to prove that he is no one-season wonder.
The Potters flyer has arguably been in the form of his life since his £2million move from Real Zaragoza last summer.
Pennant has been a key component of a side which are currently sitting in the Premier League top 10 ahead of their final game of the season at home to Wigan, as well as reaching their first-ever FA Cup final.
But Pulis knows the former Arsenal and Liverpool man must now show that he can continue his excellent form into next season.
He said: "Jermaine has got a lot more to do before he can start putting his feet under the table and thinking he's a big hitter in the Premier League again.
"But he's got the bit between his teeth like the rest of them. It's been fantastic to see that from a player who some people told me was quite lazy.
"The last three months he's recognised and realised what we're all about.
"He's picked the baton up, got on with it and he looks a better player for it. His biggest challenge is maintaining that now."
What will the outcome be?
