The winger was a regular starter for the Potters at the beginning of the season but spent much of December on the bench, fuelling rumours he would be sold in January to fund Tony Pulis' potential swoop for Blackburn's Junior Hoilett.
However, he was restored to the starting line-up for the 2-2 draw with Wigan and says he is now determined to regain his first-team spot on a regular basis.
"I have a contract and I will abide by it. I have a year-and-a-half left and I will be here for another year-and-a-half," said Pennant.
"Every footballer wants to start games, but the manager has had a winning team and he's stuck to that.
"He brought me in for Wigan and I take that with both hands. It was a great game against Wigan, but all Premier League games are great to be involved in."
