Newcastle striker Demba Ba is confident that despite the Magpies current sixth place position in the league they are perfectly placed to end the season in a Champions League slot.

The Toon are just one point off fourth place, and Ba believes his side can still push for a place in Europe’s premier competition.

"I didn't think it [the season] would be as successful as it has been," Ba told the Northern Echo. "You always work to be one of the best and that is what I am doing here - it is what I will continue to do.

"Other teams are working to be the best too and maybe they have a bit more quality than us but we're doing very well. This season is ours - we just need to enjoy it."
