Ridgewell: Birmingham survival still the main objective

Liam Ridgewell has insisted Premiership survival will be Birmingham's main goal for the 2010-2011 campaign despite finishing in the top 10 of the Barclays Premier League last season. The former Aston Villa player is hoping Alex McLeish's side can build on the success achieved during their first season back in the top flight.

He said: "I was pleased to sign on the dotted line and get the contract done and dusted.

"The ninth-placed finish came into play (when signing) and I want to be at a successful club and this club is driving on.

"But survival will be the main thing next season.

"After doing so well last season people will be wondering how we are going to do - but our aim is to stay in this league and hopefully push on from that ninth place."
