His opposite number at Birmingham City, Steve Bruce, said that he wanted his side to reach 20 points by Christmas - a target achieved on Saturday.
With that in mind, Glenn was asked if he was happy with our current Premiership position - we moved from seventh to eighth after Newcastle beat Everton on Sunday.
He responded: "I don't think you can set targets at this stage. With a lap to go in the Grand National, are they in the right position? It's immaterial.
"It's about what run you might put together. Every game is important in this league and every point is hard to achieve because the standard is very hard.
"We're only well placed if we pick up wins and go from here.
"It's an old cliche, but the next game is always most important. That's how we're looking at it."
Glenn Hoddle has insisted that it's too early to set targets in the Premiership.
