George Graham is still targeting the Premiership&rsquo&#59;s top six.<P class=MsoNormal>Saturday&rsquo&#59;s crucial victory against Sunderland left us in tenth spot just two points adrift of Newcastle United in sixth.<P class=MsoNormal>In fact, with Manchester United and Arsenal looking in a league of their own, we&rsquo&#59;re only five points behind third-placed Leicester City &mdash&#59; not too disastrous for what has been considered a disappointing start to the season.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve a lot of players to come back,&rdquo&#59; George pointed out. &ldquo&#59;A lot of players are still in the treatment room and if we can continue picking up points until they return there is no reason why we can&rsquo&#59;t make the top six.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Support came from midfielder Tim Sherwood, scorer of the first goal against Sunderland in the 2-1 win.<IMG align=left src="../title_images/totsunb.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Our target is still the top six,&rdquo&#59; he insisted. &ldquo&#59;One route to Europe is over now so we&rsquo&#59;ll have to concentrate on what is available. We&rsquo&#59;ve also got the FA Cup but to get into sixth place or above is the route in.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Meanwhile, boss George was full of praise for the players and crowd after stretching our unbeaten run to six games in the Premiership at home.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The players deserve credit because we changed our system of play and they went out and gave it everything they&rsquo&#59;ve got,&rdquo&#59; he said.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;At times it was frantic and not as sophisticated as you would like but the players were excellent. The crowd played their part as well. They were good for us.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>To listen to George's press conference in full, <A href="">click here</A><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
