Poyet pledges Albion will fight all the way
ALBION chief Gus Poyet has vowed his team will fight to the finish in the Championship play-off race.
The Seagulls try to bounce back from Friday’s 1-0 defeat at Burnley against second-placed Reading at The Amex tomorrow night after slipping out of the top six.
They also have to go to third-placed West Ham on Saturday and host fourth-paced Birmingham later this month in-between matches home and away against non-contenders Watford and Barnsley.
Poyet told The Argus: “We are just looking at five massive games. We are not going to give up until the end. We’re going to play on Tuesday and try to win the game.
“If you had asked me before the two games which was easier I am not afraid to say Burnley.
“Reading are on fire and have been winning games for fun and that is why they are second. Burnley had plenty of players missing, so it was a great opportunity. Let’s hope we can correct it on Tuesday.
“Now football is so crazy that maybe we will beat Reading after losing at Burnley. At the end of the day it’s the same three points.”
Albion will still be without Liam Bridcutt for Reading’s visit as he completes a two-match ban but fellow midfielder Matt Sparrow is available again after a two-match suspension.
The Seagulls will be four points adrift of a play-off spot if Cardiff beat Watford at home today.
Middlesbrough will also move above them into seventh if they avoid defeat at Hull.
