Kuqi Sets 75 Point Swans Target

The Swansea City striker believes that just 22 more points from the last 14 games of the season will earn the Swans their play off position for a place in the Premier League.

And with the team 11 games unbeaten there is every chance they will exceed that target although that is not something on the mind of Kuqi at this moment in time.

“I think 75 or 76 points will guarantee us a place in the play-offs so there is still plenty of work for us to do.” he told the Evening Post

“This is a tough, tough league and anything can happen. You look at some of the big clubs who are down at the bottom, and also how tight things are in terms of points between the sides up and down the table.

“In my opinion you might not need as many points as usual to get to the play-offs because it is so tight — everybody is beating everybody and teams keep dropping points.

“Derby have just beaten Newcastle and Nottingham Forest, and I don’t think you can say at the moment who is going to finish in the play-offs and who will end up in the top two.

“But our job is to keep trying to work hard and trying to get as many points as we can from each game we play.

“We have got unbelievable spirit in this team and a great attitude,” Kuqi added.

“We don’t want to lose and, if we keep going like this, anything can happen for us.

“We were disappointed not to win the games against Plymouth and Newcastle, but we showed what we are all about at Derby. A couple of teams have gone there and been punished quite badly, but we showed our desire.

“I think the reds were both fair, although their guy was lucky not to go for the first challenge,” Kuqi said.

“Luckily Joe’s leg was in the air and not on the ground, otherwise he could have broken it.

“I don’t think Gorka went to hurt Robbie Savage. It looked bad, but I think the one by Shaun Derry on me (at Crystal Palace) the other week was worse and we didn’t even get a free-kick.”
