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.

"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."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
