Stoke defender Danny Collins believes the club's continued progress could yield a trophy in the near future.
The Potters are now in their third season in the Barclays Premier League and, after two mid-table finishes, are now looking to push higher.
Collins joined the club from Sunderland last year and is impressed by the way manager Tony Pulis is pushing forward.
The 30-year-old said: "The gaffer is building a strong squad and some players are going to be unhappy when they get left out.
"The club have had two solid seasons in the Premier League and now looking to push into the top half. We are looking to build on the previous year each year and some silverware to go with it would be nice."
