Hughes: We CAN Make The Top Six

Hughes: We CAN Make The Top Six

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes remains confident that Rovers CAN make it into the top six this season, therefore make it into Europe once again next season.

Hughes believes that the break that we had in Florida made a HUGE difference (and it showed) in the 4-1 win over Bolton Wanderers at Ewood Park, but now he is expecting us to build on this and win the winnable matches we have coming up in March.

Hughes told Sky Sports: "We went away at just the right time and you saw the energy in our play.

"We came flying out of the blocks and that's what we wanted and the reason why we did it.

"It is going to take more points to get a European place than it has ever done but we'll keep going.

"We've got winnable games and if we can put pressure on by taking maximum points hopefully we'll get where we want to go
."

Sparky also had some words of praise for Bolton (and the 4-1 winning margin probably did flatter us) whom he feels WILL avoid relegation from the Premier League.

Hughes added: "I think in fairness they caused us a number of problems and will cause lesser teams than us more problems.

"It'll be difficult and it'll go right down to the wire but I think they're going to be fine
."

This was EXACTLY what we needed, and is a perfect way to end the Month, now we go into March with PLENTY of winnable matches, if we can win most (if not all) we'll be RIGHT in the European hunt, probably even leading the charge!!!

Gonna be tough, with possibly a record high in points required to claim the euro spots.

Unless it's a United-Chelsea FA cup final you might have to finish 5th. You've definately got the quality to do it but it's gonna be an almighty slug for it
