Kenny Jackett: Still retains hope of reaching play-offs

The Lions have slipped down the table since the turn of the year but picked up their first league win since January 1 when they defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 on Saturday evening.

A second victory over Boro this season lifted the Lions back up to 13th, eight points adrift of the top six.

"After the defeats we've had in the league it was a very good win for us and excellent to get a double over a team like Middlesbrough," said Jackett.

"There are a lot of games to come and anything is possible. The spirit we had was good and we will be looking to move on from the victory in a positive way now.

"We will need a real good run like we had earlier in the season to get up there, but we will see what happens."

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!
