Brighton: Going for the Championship play-offs

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."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
