Allardyce eyes survival mark
09 Feb 2010 - 07:43:19
Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has set his sights on his side reaching the 40-point mark to ensure that they are safe from the threat of relegation.
Rovers currently have 28 points and are seven points clear of the drop zone, but Allardyce is still concerned by his side's failure to win at West Ham, with the Upton Park clash just over a week ago ending goalless.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I said it last week but the throwing away of two points at West Ham was the big one for us.
"That is where we are looking back and are very regretful we didn't get those three points.
"Sitting on 30 points rather than 28 would make us look a lot more comfortable.
"We are not out of trouble by a long chalk yet. The magic 40-point mark is looming and that is where we have to get to.
"You haven't had to get that many for many, many years, but that is the magic mark."
