Curbs targets top ten finish

Filed: Sunday, 29th July 2007

Alan Curbishley has told KUMB.com that he is aiming for a top ten finish next season.

With expectations high following a spate of recent signings and rumours of more to follow, Curbishley has revealed that European qualification - as suggested by some - would be an unexpected bonus rather than a target.

Yet given good progress in 07/08, he admitted that a top six finish would be in his sights the following year.

Talking to Colin Wells and Gary Jones for KUMB.com during the recent visit to Austria, Curbishley said:

"We’ve got players that are good enough for us to have a solid season. If we have a solid season that makes us a little bit more attractive for next year and people start to know about us.

"We’ve got to get that. There’s a lot of negativity around us and we’ve got to spin that around by what we do on the pitch. Hopefully we’ll do that this year.

"It’s a proper expectation level for us and if we do a little bit better then fine, if we do a little bit worse than that, that’s disappointing."
