Steve Harper: "The 40-point mark is not a million miles away.

"Glenn Roeder used to tell us every day he was at West Ham and they went down with 42.

"Whether it be 34 or 42, what is enough to keep us up is irrelevant.

"The least we must finish is 17th - and we want to finish as high we possibly can.

"We just have to get as many points as possible.

"Our immediate priority is to get more points than the bottom three.

"Hopefully, once we are safe we can concentrate on moving out of the bottom half and into the top.

"At the moment there are a dozen teams at the bottom fighting for their lives."
