The Seagulls' 2-0 win at Bolton on Saturday left them a point outside the top six with a game in hand on the teams above them.

Next up is a visit from Ipswich at the weekend and Jones knows a strong end to the season could see them make the play-offs for the second year running.

"The win sets us up for next week and it is important that we keep picking up points as we are at the business end of the season and every game is a battle now," he said.

"We have seen teams slip up and have results that you don't expect, we don't want that to be us.

"We are at the end of the season where everything matters and almost every team is fighting for something.

"If we continue to play well, work hard and keep clean sheets then we could have a nice end to the season."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
