Jimmy Aims For Europe

ABERDEEN boss Jimmy Calderwood hopes Scott Severin's late winner against Hibernian will prove to be a turning point in the club's season.

The Scotland international midfielder unleashed a 25-yard rocket to score the winning goal in the Dons' first Monday night live game, firing the Reds into fourth place in the SPL.

Now Dons gaffer is looking for his team to kick on and join the battle for a Champions League spot.

Calderwood said: "We are now fourth and should start thinking about aiming for second place.

"We are now just three points behind Hearts, who have to go to Celtic at the weekend. Dundee United will also be out to impress a new manager when Rangers visit them.

"It means we could be going to Inverness next Monday knowing a win will draw us level with the side in second place.

Jimmy could be given a selection headache by the return of Jamie Smith, Steve Lovell and Karim Touzani for the trip to Inverness Caledonian Thistle next Monday evening.

He added: "We are going to get stronger and better in the weeks ahead.

"If we could get to the situation where we have all of our top men fit, then I'm sure we would really start to fly in this league."
