Hughton Now Has A New Target To Aim For

Chris Hughton now has the task of getting Birmingham into the play off places at the end of the season.

Hughton has got the team flowing at the moment, but the financial state of the club has left the boardroom looking for promotion back to the Premier league at the first attempt after finishing in one of the four places available.

With having no money at the moment to spend on the team and the likely prospect of having to sell in January, Hughton`s task has now moved from a top two place to a play off place.

Acting chairman Peter Pannu said: 'I will continue to give Chris the full backing I possibly can despite difficult circumstances.

'We have to do all we can, as a club and its fans, to support him as we aim for at least a play-off place. I don't think that is an unrealistic target.

'Make no mistake about it, I have not set any unreasonable targets for Chris to achieve, as has been reported.'
