Oscar: We will fight to the end
Albion boss Oscar Garcia is amazed to have his team in the play-off race with two games to go.
And he has vowed they will fight to the finish to claim sixth spot.
The Seagulls dropped a place to seventh last night, a point behind Reading, as a result of the Royals’ 2-0 home win against mid-table Middlesbrough, only their second victory in seven games. Albion were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Blackpool at the Amex on Monday but other contenders have been slipping up regularly as well.
Oscar told The Argus: “For me it’s amazing to be fighting for this place at this stage, bearing in mind what has happened during the season.
“It’s amazing to be here and have a chance to get into the play-offs. The results show that better squads than us are finding it difficult to win as well.
“We will fight until the end. That’s what we have to do and it’s what we will do.”
Albion can reclaim sixth place by beating doomed Yeovil in their final home game of the regular season on Friday evening ahead of a full programme of matches on Saturday for their promotion rivals, including Reading’s trip to relegation-threatened Doncaster.
Oscar said: “I prefer to play before, because then other teams are under more pressure.
“We know it will be difficult. It’s never easy to play against teams at the bottom because they come here to sit back and counter-attack.
“If you are not much, much better than them it’s not easy.”
