Saturday's 0-0 draw with Brighton left the Reds level on points with Gus Poyet's side and three shy of the top six.

"We are doing our best for it (promotion)," the former Chelsea striker Hasselbaink said.

"It depends on a lot of factors, you need a little bit of luck and you need everything to go for you.

"We had a really good result against Brighton. Brighton played quite well in the first half and should have scored one, but we had some chances as well and hit the bar.

"In the second half we were really good and could have won it. But we drew 0-0 and that was a good result. We are on the right track."

He added: "It is a very tight division. Everybody can beat everybody - look at Cardiff who were beaten by Peterborough at home.

"Peterborough, bottom of the league, beat the top of the league. That is what you are working with. It is the hardest league to get out of."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
