Nigerian international, John Mikel Obi has expressed optimism that his current side, Stoke City will secure promotion to the English top flight.

The former Super Eagles captain concedes that the team will have to intensify efforts at improving their performance if their target of securing promotion will be achieved.

Mikel made the switch to Stoke this summer and has played in five of their matches this season. He has been deployed in defensive roles while also featuring in his preferred holding midfield position.

Ahead of Stoke City’s encounter with Brentford this weekend, Mikel said, “I just keep going, get ticking over and get the team to play and help the team defensively as well.

“We’re trying to find a way to play out. You could see in the game (against Barnsley) that we did that a few times, we did come out really well. If we keep playing like this I think we’ll be there.

“I’m enjoying myself to be back playing the game and the aim is to help get this club where it should be, which is in the Premier League.”
