The Seasiders moved to 50 points following Monday's win over Crystal Palace, three points above the bottom three, but have played a game more than three of the sides below them.

However, Ince believes their win over the Eagles was a major boost for his side and he is already switching his attention to next season.

"Everyone's winning at the bottom and it puts pressure on teams close to us," he said. "I think we need maybe another win and a draw and we'll be fine, and then we can build for next season.

"[Monday's win] brings other teams back into it, and all of a sudden you're looking up and wondering if you can get up there.

"It's a big lift for the boys because performances since I've been here have been fantastic. The results we've had have been a little bit unfair. Those draws could have easily been turned into wins."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
