Laursen targets big finish

10 April 2008 02:30
Aston Villa defender Martin Laursen is looking to build on the 4-0 demolition of Bolton Wanderers and end the season in style. Martin O'Neill's side face already relegated Derby County this weekend and Laursen thinks anything other than another victory will be a major disappointment. He told the Birmingham Post: "We have Derby coming up at Pride Park and then Birmingham City but we can't allow ourselves to look further than the game ahead. "We need to focus on Derby. On paper we have a great chance to pick up three points but it is never easy in football. "Derby are already relegated but they will be playing for pride and they don't have any pressure on them. We would like to get three points and then we can look ahead to the Birmingham game. "If Portsmouth use all their energy now on the FA Cup, especially as they are in the final now, then we just need to pick up all the points we can and try and finish on a high because Europe is still a possibility. "We have had a great season even though lately it hasn't been so good for us. "It would be really disappointing if the players who played really well to begin with ended up not finishing well. The confidence is back now and we need more of the same this Saturday."
