West Brom not happy with just survival – Ridgewell

Liam Ridgewell suggests that West Bromwich Albion are not content just staying in the Premier League.

Liam Ridgewell suggests that West Bromwich Albion are not content just staying in the Premier League.

The defender, who arrived at The Hawthorns from Birmingham City in January, was part of the Baggies side which lost 3-1 at home to Newcastle United yesterday but insists that the 14th-placed club have stronger targets than just remaining aloft on the top flight.

"There is no complacency," said Ridgewell. "This team doesn't just want to stay in the Premier League, we want to push on in the league.

"It's a bonus that it looks like we should be here next season already with the points we've got on the board.

"But we want to push the team and the club on and get up as high as we can in the league.

"If you're a team that switches off, you might as well give up and go on holiday with 10 games to go because there's no point in turning up and having a game."
