Jackett backs Seagulls to beat drop

Jackett said: "I don't think Brighton will go down. Gus Poyet has got some good players to work with. Nicky Forster and Glenn Murray are a threat up front and results will turn for them.

"The common denominator is you have to have good players and, in Chris Holroyd, Brighton have a player who we have monitored ourselves."

Jackett believes his side are running into form at the right time and he added: "For the last two years we've been competing at the top end of the table and we hope to sustain it.

"It's been a key week for us with nine points from three games, we're pushing for a play-off place and have as good a chance as anybody."
