Harry Redknapp continued to play down Tottenham's Premier League title aspirations after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Wolves.
Spurs could have moved level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table if they had defeated Mick McCarthy's struggling visitors at White Hart Lane.
But Redknapp has throughout the campaign persisted with a party-line of the main aim being the intention to finish in the top four.
Rafael van der Vaart's taunt to City in midweek had suggested Spurs were beginning to think about the title.
However, Redknapp told Sky Sports: "If we can make the top four this year, it will be a fantastic achievement for us. It will be great to again have Champions League football at Tottenham.
"That is the aim. That is what we have got to try to do - make sure we again get that Champions League spot. Anything above that will be a bonus."
Wolves had taken a shock first-half lead after Steven Fletcher scored from an incorrectly awarded corner before Luka Modric equalised in the second half.
The point stretched the visitors' winless streak to seven matches, but Redknapp always knew it would be a difficult match after watching McCarthy's men draw at Spurs' derby rivals Arsenal over Christmas.
Redknapp said: "It was a tough game. When you go behind to Wolves, they are scrapping for their lives. They went to Arsenal the other week and drew.
"There are no easy games. People have to understand. You're not going to keep winning and walking all over teams every week."
Next up for Redknapp is a massively important trip to City a week on Sunday, when Spurs will attempt to end Roberto Mancini's team's 100 per cent home record in the league.
The Tottenham boss said: "Their home record is played 10, won 10. It has got to change sometime, let's hope it is next week."
