Defeats to West Ham, Liverpool and Bolton have seen us drop slightly off the European pace with seven games remaining, but the skipper insists that the desire and ability is there to compensate for recent results and grab one of the places.
"Yes, definitely," said Teddy. "It's not the end of the world, we're still in tenth place - hopefully just three points off a European spot.
"We're hoping that seventh will be good enough, the same as we did last year. Even so, we want to finish as high up the league as we can.
"We're playing for our wages and our pride and you've got to take all these things into account. You want to perform, it doesn't matter what age you are, you want to perform at the highest level.
"We'll be doing that from now until the end of the season and see where that takes us."
Teddy Sheringham reports that he senses a great determination within the club to steer our season back on course.
