TEEMU TARGETS MAXIMUM
Teemu Tainio is targeting a nine-point return from our final week triple-header which begins tonight when we travel to Charlton.
Teemu Tainio is targeting a nine-point return from our final week triple-header which begins tonight when we travel to Charlton.The maths are simple - win all three games and fifth place in the Premiership table would be secured for the second season in row and Teemu explained that this is naturally the aim.
"Of course we want the maximum, but the main thing is getting into the UEFA Cup," said the Finn. "If we win our last three games we will finish fifth so it will be an interesting week. What we have to do is win the games."
It will be an unusual visit to the Valley as in recent seasons Charlton have either been flying high or safe in the Premiership when we have made the trip.
"They always seemed to be pretty comfortable in the middle of the table so I am surprised and then again not surprised," said Teemu of their current position where they need to win in order to avoid relegation tonight. "Where you are in the league is where you deserve to be and they haven't had a good season.
"It is true you have to be ready for every season, look at West Ham last year when they had a great season and reached the FA Cup final. This season they have had problems.
"Charlton will be fighting for survival on Monday so it will be a tough game and we want the points as much as them."
