Jones targets away double test for Seagulls
Nathan Jones has targeted the next two away games as crucial to Albion staying in contention for the play-offs after last night's "massive" point at Blackburn.
The Seagulls go to relegation-threatened Barnsley on Saturday, then champions-elect Leicester next Tuesday.
Three of the four games after that are at the Amex - against Charlton, Blackpool and Yeovil - before the curtain closer at Nottingham Forest.
Assistant head coach Jones said of the 3-3 recovery at Blackburn: "It's massive, the manner of coming back and what it gives to us. If we were four points off the play-off's then it's two results. Now it will take one.
"We've got two games coming up in quick succession. We've got to get results, then we have got a run of games that we are excited about."
Albion are staying at St George's Park again in-between the Barnsley and Leicester games. The national training centre was also their base in January when they won at Port Vale in the FA Cup and drew at Burnley three days later.
Craig Mackail-Smith, fresh from two goals and his first 90 minutes in over a year in the development team's 2-2 draw against Charlton at the Amex on Monday, could be back in contention with fellow long-term injury victim Will Hoskins to bolster the striker options.
Jones said: "It was fantasic to see him (Mackail-Smith) back. We watched the game at the hotel on Monday night. He showed a real desire, looked close to the CMS we know."
