Woodgate has top-four aim

Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate sees no reason why Harry Redknapp's side can't challenge for a top-four finish next term. After spending the first half of the current campaign struggling to avoid relegation, Spurs are now in contention for a Europa League place and former Leeds and Newcastle star Woodgate thinks that augurs well for next season. "I want to finish as far as we can up the league," he said. "The aim is always to get in the top four and the Champions League. "We'll see how we do. It's going to be a better team next year, you can see how the team has changed under the manager we have now. "Robbie (Keane) and Jermain (Defoe) have been good acquisitions for the squad, along with Wilson Palacios, who's been brilliant for us. "It's taking shape in the training ground and we're starting to do it on a Saturday."
