BOSS Chris Hughton says Albion have no choice other than to fight rather than play their way out of relegation trouble.

Wolves fans greeted the final whistle with cries of "boring, boring" after a dogged defensive display by the Seagulls earned them a vital 0-0 draw.

Relegation rivals Cardiff had no water on the pitch or ball boys in a vain attempt to slow down Liverpool's title charge in Wales.

Hughton told The Argus: "This is what's at stake. Ultimately at the end it's only about getting enough points that will keep you in the division.

"And everyone will do it different ways. There are the clubs that can play free flowing football, have the attacking options that can get them goals and get them out of trouble.

"And there are the level of clubs that it's going to be a fight and we are one of those clubs.

"For a big chunk of the season, at times not necessarily playing so well, we were able to stay out of that bottom three.

"We are still out of that bottom three and three points clear of it with a decent sort of goal difference and that's what happens when you are in a fight like we are and other clubs are."

Martin Montoya, Bernardo, Yves Bissouma, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Jurgen Locadia and Florin Andone could all come back into contention at Tottenham tonight.

"Not only was it a big shift on Saturday, it was quite an emotional game as well," Hughton said.

"Not only have we had Tuesday, then Saturday, we've had that for two weeks.

"Saturday's game against Newcastle will be our fifth in two weeks.

"The balance for me is taking it all into consideration but fielding a team that is capable of competing to get something."
