West Brom's Shane Long targets top-10 finish

Baggies striker believes that Roy Hodgson's side are able to secure a top-half finish after an impressive run of form including three wins in their last five games
West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long has targeted a top-10 finish in the Premier League this season, and the Republic of Ireland international hasn't given up on his side qualifying for Europe.

Roy Hodgson's side have secured 36 points already this season, leaving them just three points behind Swansea City, who currently occupy eighth position.

And with the middle of the table looking extremely congested, Long sees no reason why the Baggies can't push on.

"It's very tight between 14th and eighth in the table," Long told the Wolverhampton Express & Star.

"It would be very easy to finish in the top 10 and qualify for Europe.

"We've definitely got a good enough squad to do that. We can't take our foot off the pedal now."

The Baggies look good for a strong finish to the campaign after notching three wins from their last five games, including a black country derby demolition of Wolves and a narrow victory over Chelsea that cost Andre Villas-Boas his job as manager at Stamford Bridge.
