Cape Town - Swansea City manager Gary Monk has his heart set on ending the Premier League season in the top half of the table as they prepare to take on Newcastle United at St James' Park on Saturday.
The Swans are currently eight in the table but, at this stage of the season, are too far away from the top to qualify for European football, but also well enough clear of the bottom to be threatened by relegation, leaving little motivation to keep picking up points.
But Monk still has his own personal objectives to achieve in the remaining five fixtures, and is set to remind his team that they still have something to play for against the Magpies.
"Considering everything, top 10 is a fantastic achievement - or it could be a fantastic achievement," he said.
"It would be extremely disappointing if we finish outside it now but the greedy side of you wants more.
"Ninth place is the best we've finished but to beat that and finish in eighth in that mini-league in the middle with Stoke, Palace, Everton, West Ham... it would be great to finish on top of that.
"It has to be part of the motivation and something I will remind the players as well. I put it to the players at the start about beating the club's points record (of 47 points).
"I knew I could get the players committed to the work to get ourselves in this position, that is easy to say now but I truly believed with the quality we added in the summer to what we had then we could do something."
