Victory would have given Albion a five-point cushion on their seventh-placed visitors, but in the end it took a Kazenga LuaLua goal two minutes from time to secure a 1-1 draw.

Bolton and Leicester are just two points behind with five games to play, but a positive Poyet said: "It's in our hands.

"LuaLua's goal could be a very important one for us. We've drawn our last three games and I would say we need to win three of our last five matches.

"It'll be a good number as teams behind us will need to win four. We can't blame anyone if we don't do it.

"We're ahead of the rest and it's up to us to be ahead of Leicester and Bolton. It will only be because of our failings if we don't do it."

The point for Leicester was just their third in eight games, but Poyet said: "Leicester are a very good team.

"They have power, pace and technical ability and are a very good team to play against. I'm sure Nigel Pearson can turn this run around."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
