Southampton skipper Davis keen for Europa League vengeance

Steven Davis is hoping Southampton can clinch a spot in the Europa League for next season.

Ronald Koeman's Saints currently seventh on the Premier League table following the weekend's 2-1 win at Stoke City and captain Davis wants to keep pushing for a high finish in a bid to go one better than this campaign where they failed to get past the Europa's qualifying stages.

"The aim every year is to try and progress and do better than you did the previous season," the Northern Ireland international said.

"Having put ourselves in such a good position last year with all the hard work, it was really disappointing to go out before the group stages. It would be nice to go one better but there are still a lot of important games to be played between now and the end of the season.

"But you can't really foresee how this season is going to go - every week is a challenge."
