A few more points until we can dream big - Newcastle's Coloccini

Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini believes the club needs to record just a couple of points to confirm top flight football for next season before pushing higher up the table.

The Magpies sit fifth on 39 points and the Argentine defender wants just one or two more in the bank before worrying about bigger and better things.

"It's good to win in this way, and we know now that we can have dreams because we're one point, maybe two points, away from the total you need to be safe," he told the club's official website in regards to last night's 2-0 win at Blackburn Rovers.

"That's good, because we can look forward. Why not dream about playing in a European cup?

"I think it is okay to dream - but only if we keep winning."
