On-loan Stoke defender Gabriel Zakuani is hopeful the club can seal promotion to the Premier League this weekend.
Stoke require only a point from their clash with relegation-threatened Leicester to reach the Premier League for the first time.
Zakuani believes Stoke boss Tony Pulis must take all the plaudits for leading the unfancied side to the brink of promotion.
"It is every player's dream [to play in the Premier League] and the season we have had has been brilliant,"Zakuani told Sky Sports News.
"A lot of teams have slipped up and we have picked up form at the right time and I think the way Tony Pulis has brought the team together as the togetherness of the team is just brilliant.
"I am really looking forward to it [the game with Leicester] and hopefully it happens on Sunday."
Zakuani is expecting a tough test against Leicester with the Foxes fighting for their lives at the wrong end of the table.
"No team is going to roll over for you. Colchester we played last week and they didn't roll over for us and they are already relegated," added Zakuani.
"Everyone has got something to play for, everyone has got pride to play for. They have survival to play for and they will be coming at us and we have got something to play for.
"There is no easy game in this league and we just want to go out and do it."
