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."

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.
