Chris Hughton is determined to keep our destiny in our hands as the race for fourth place in the Premiership goes down to the wire.

Saturday's fine performance and draw at Arsenal means if we win our final games against Bolton on Sunday and West Ham on May 7 we'll finish fourth.

Arsenal have three games remaining against Sunderland, Manchester City and Wigan and Blackburn are still in the frame - they are eight points adrift but have yet to play Charlton, Chelsea and Manchester City.

First assistant coach Chris said: "We’ve had some really good weeks where results have gone our way, notably with Blackburn and Bolton dropping points, but that hasn't always been the case and you have to look after your own results - it's in our hands and if we win the two games then we haven’t got to worry about anything else.

"Bolton is a home game but a very difficult game, they are back to winning ways and scoring goals again, so it will be tough but it's up to us.

"It’s a pressurised position but these are the positions any team wants to be in.

"The lads have responded to it and there is no more pressure than going to your local rivals with so much at stake and playing how we played at Arsenal. The lads are certainly up for it."
