Glenn Roeder: "We want to go as far as we can - that goes without saying. Newcastle as a club has a need to be in Europe every season.

"We need to try to achieve that - and I still believe, with the amount of games left, we have an opportunity to achieve a place in Europe through our finishing league position this year.

"Of course, if we can go all the way in the UEFA Cup that will give us another opportunity.

"But you know me - I take one game at a time. The only game that is important to me and the players is the game tonight, nothing beyond that.

"We are focused fully on one game and one game only. We are fully concentrated and ready for what we know will be a tough match.

"But after beating Liverpool at the weekend, we are really looking forward to it."
