Bowyer Sets Sights On Top Ten Finish

Bowyer Sets Sights On Top Ten Finish

Birmingham midfielder Lee Bowyer says that he and his team mates are looking to finish this season in the top half of the Premiership.

It would be an admirable feat for Blues to get a top half finish after being tipped by many at the start of the season to go back down to the Championship.

But a seven month unbeaten home record has seen Blues be able to hang on to a spot in the top ten since December and Sunday`s result against Liverpool means that none of the top six have taken maximum points from St Andrews this term.

Bowyer, who has had a fine season said: 'It surprised everybody, including the players and the manager, that we reached the 40-point mark as early as we did.

'If we are all honest with each other, we thought it was going to be a lot harder than it was and that is a credit to everybody at the club for the hard work we have put in.

'We have surprised a lot of teams but we have still got to finish as high as possible.

'Once we did reach the 40-point mark, we could have taken our foot off the pedal but we have showed we want to get as many points as possible.

'It would be disappointing now if we didn't finish in the top half but, like I said all the way through that amazing unbeaten run we were on mid-way through the season, we have got to be realistic here.

'We haven't got a very big squad and we just need to keep taking it point by point.

'Even if we don't end up in the top half, it still hasn't been a bad season because everyone tipped us to go down.

'At the start of the season we would have taken 17th position but now we want to be greedy and we want to finish in the top 10.'

You have done a hell of a lot better than many of us thought that you would. Hope that you make top half.
