Britain's Matthew Wilson has been told to aim for a top-ten finish on the Uddeholm Swedish Rally.

The target has been set by his dad and M-Sport boss, Malcolm Wilson and while it won't be easy, as it is very much a specialist event and this will be the only his third outing on the Karlstad-based round, he is still reasonably confident.

Furthermore after mechanical problems sidelined him last season on the final day, he is extra determined to bring his Focus RS WRC car home and ideally give himself a belated birthday present, having turned 21 at the end of last week.

"Now I have a full WRC event under my belt with the '07 car and Scott [Martin] as my new co-driver I'm really looking forward to Sweden and to see what we can produce there," said the Englishman.

"It's definitely one of my more favoured events because of the incredible high speeds we are able to travel at on the ice packed roads.

"Last year was unfortunate with what happened in the extremely cold temperatures so this time round getting to the finish is priority and hopefully a good result can follow suit."
