Glenn Whelan insists Stoke have enough quality in the squad to get themselves beyond the 50-point mark this season.
The Potters have once again proved their doubters wrong as they sit comfortably in ninth position in the Premier League, having taken 36 points from 27 games.
And with another 11 games remaining this campaign, the 28-year-old, who became the club's most capped international after making his 37th appearance for the Republic of Ireland against Czech Republic last week, believes Tony Pulis' men are more than capable of reaching the landmark tally.
He told the club's official website: "It's important to get those next four points on the board as quickly as we can to get us to that 40-point mark, but to be honest I am looking beyond that tally.
"We want to push on this season and try to get beyond the 50 mark if we can; that would be a fantastic achievement for us and again show that we are continuing to progress.
"It is vital for the club to keep pushing onwards and upwards, and if we can pick up another 14 points between now and the end of the season then it will have been another remarkable year for us."
