West Ham Aim for Top Six Finish
Alan Curbishley says that now West Ham have been knocked out of the cup they must aim for a top six finish.
"We can all see where we can get to," said Curbishley. "It was a big disappointment on Wednesday because before the game we were really up for the Cup and we wanted to do well.
"But the talk afterwards was that if we can get a result on Sunday, we may catch one of the teams above us. We feel we have given ourselves a base, a bit of a chance to push on. We are looking to get into that top six or seven.
"We can see a couple of the teams above us. I looked at Portsmouth and Blackburn. Portsmouth are catchable. If we can get a result at Manchester City we can see them as well. I am looking at the fixtures thinking 'let's attack the run-in'.
"We have to be looking upwards not downwards."
