Points Target Is Tricky To Set, Says J-Rob
Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts reckons the relegation battle is so tight that setting a points target is near impossible.
With so many clubs still at risk setting a target to reach could be dangerous and cause complacency.
Roberts, speaking to Sky Sports said - "It is a tough one, at the bottom things are so tight. Even this draw against a decent side that are top ten seems like a great result and you can see where they are in the league.
"Until we get there we have to stay focused on what our jobs are and not let out standards down. I am not sure how many points it will take to stay up, it could well be around 42, I have not thought about it.
"We try to look up rather than behind us and how far we can move up the league rather than those that are just trying to stay up.
"That is the mindset we must be in. At this time, we will take staying up."
Fair words. I think it is crucial we take each game as it comes and not try to look to far ahead.
