Defender Mike Williamson is refusing to look too far ahead as Newcastle attempt to remain in the upper reaches of the Barclays Premier League table.

The 28-year-old's return from injury has coincided with a resurgence on Tyneside which has seen the Magpies end a run of six league games without victory and claim wins over Bolton and champions Manchester United.

However, as he prepared for Sunday's home clash with QPR, Williamson was refusing to look too far ahead as some fans dream of European qualification, and said: "It's a cliche, but we are taking every game as it comes. For me personally, when you start getting carried away with targets and looking where we could finish, it just gets a bit too much."
