    Cardiff City star Callum Paterson targets automatic promotion and reveals where he actually wants to play
    The Bluebirds have had a turbulent first half of the campaign, but the Scot believes they can now make a surge up the table

    [​IMG]

    Cardiff City's Callum Paterson is targeting automatic promotion this season - and believes it is possible because the Championship is the 'maddest league in the world'.

    The Bluebirds have struggled for consistency this term, having drawn too many games and shipping far too many goals.

    While City have underperformed so far this season, they sit just four points off the play-off spots.

    After a difficult festive period, the Bluebirds will certainly be targeting the top six, however Paterson wants to go one further.

    Despite sitting 14 points off second-placed West Brom, the Scot thinks anything is possible in this division and automatic promotion is not off limits this term.

    "We’re just outside the play-offs, only a few points off," Paterson said after the 4-3 win over Carlisle in the FA Cup.

    "We definitely want to be there at the end of the season – definitely in the top six and if we can get the top two, that would be even better for us. Everything is realistic in the Championship.

    "It’s the maddest league in the world – you could be 100 points clear and still get caught. We’ll keep going until the last game and the last kick of the ball.

    "Hopefully we can get up."

    Paterson has endured a frustrating season himself, having suffered with injury and failing to nail down a position.

    The Scotland international, who was initially signed as a right back, has played up front, in behind the striker, in midfield and on the wing this season and there is a concern among some that he needs consistency in order to keep his place in the side.

    Paterson, however, has said where he sees his future in the side.

    "I’m chatting with [Harris] all the time," he added.

    "I would go in goals and I’d probably be alright!

    "I’d play anywhere, but I’d like to play nine or ten and hopefully lock down a position.

    "The boys up front have been doing really well this year so I can’t knock on his door every week, but I’ll keep working hard behind closed doors and in training to get opportunities."

    Well I've got my eye on a nice yacht, a mansion by the side of a golf course, an Aston Martin and maybe a holiday home in the sun.

    I'm just 24 hour hours away from buying a euromillions lottery ticket

    I don't think he said any of that, but the reporter had to write something. I'm quite tuned in to the Scottish accent, but I can't understand a word Paterson says. :nope:

    He’s right though isn’t he, about the championship. Every year people underestimate its capacity to surprise. Teams can come from apparent mid table mediocrity or worse, to end up getting promoted.

    Yes we aren’t playing well at the moment, and we are a work in progress but, god weeleeng, a couple of decent players coming in this month, maybe a couple of good results and suddenly confidence is back and you never know.

    Anyway I can’t mess around on here all day I have my meds to take....NURSE!!!!

    Even if it was said tongue in cheek (which I think it was), then it's certainly a lot more entertaining to read than the negative stuff that is repeatedly trotted out.
