No league target for Lennon

Neil Lennon: One game at a time

The Hoops are 19 points clear of Motherwell at the top of the Premier League and firmly on course to retain the title for the second year in a row.

But Lennon is refusing to take any success for granted, and told his players to focus on the games as they come.

"You can't be as blase as that," Lennon said. "What we have to do is keep winning and force other teams to keep winning.

"So we have to beat Dundee and then Motherwell and if we win that then that will increase the gap over them but it is all ifs, buts and maybes at the minute.

"The players are going for a championship so I don't think there is any extra motivation needed.

"There is clear daylight between us and the rest and we want to reinforce that lead, whether it be against Dundee or whoever."

And Lennon will not be underestimating Sunday's opponents Dundee, who sacked manager Barry Smith in midweek.

"Dundee have had their problems but we are fully focused on what we have to do which is win the game and win it well," Lennon added.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
