Paul Ince: Says four more points will secure survival

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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
