Ashley Barnes insists a play-off push is the priority, despite the excitement of the FA Cup.

Albion have won back-to-back league games for the first time since September.

They also have the prospect of home FA Cup tie against Arsenal and Swansea a week next Saturday.

Barnes said: “We are concentrating on the league and getting back into the play-offs, where we want to be.

“The play-offs were our aim at the start of the season – or hopefully in the top two “There is always one team who comes with a run and sneaks in there and hopefully that can be us.

“We’ll think about the cup game around our league games.”

Barnes scored the opener a 2-1 win over Derby yesterday.

He said: “We should have killed the game early on but that was the way it went and fortunately we came through it.”
