Hughes on the race for seventh

"Obviously certain things need to happen with teams in the Champions League positions winning trophies just to drop it down.

"We are probably a little bit too far away to get sixth position but certainly seventh is well within our grasp and we will be working to that end."
>>MEN.

As I've stated previously, 53 points is my calculation of what will be required to finish in seventh position.

In all likelihood we will need to put a decent winning streak (both home and away together) in order to achieve this. Perhaps it is just beyond us, but with a real focus in the league this should keep us sharp for the UEFA Cup challenges that lie ahead.
