Woody eyes European place

Jonathan Woodgate believes Tottenham Hotspur now have an outside chance of securing European qualification for next season. Spurs moved up to 11th place in the table after Sunday's 2-1 victory over Aston Villa and the England defender has now set his sights on breaking into the top seven. That would likely secure a place in next season's Europa League - the new-look UEFA Cup format - and Woodgate is confident that goal can now be achieved. "Winning at Aston Villa was a big result for us, but I would rather be optimistic rather than pessimistic," he said. "I'd rather look up than down, try to win as many games as we can. "We are on a good run. Europe? We have a chance but let's not get carried away. "We have got a lot of work to do still, a lot of teams to play around us as well, so hopefully we can get involved in it."
