Harry Redknapp feels we'll have to win an away game on Merseyside to have a chance of finishing seventh.

Saturday's 1-0 win against West Brom kept us in the hunt for that final European qualification spot in the Premier League.

However, rivals West Ham and Manchester City also won to close the gap on Fulham, currently in seventh. Only one point separates the four teams.

"We'll keep going," said Harry after the win against the Baggies. "The teams around us all won again, West Ham had a great result at Stoke, they'll have a great chance now with two home games left.

"Fulham lost at Chelsea but are right in the mix, City as well, it's tight.

"We'll have to win away and we've two tough away games in Everton and Liverpool, plus City at home.

"A top-half finish is more than we could have hoped for earlier in the season. Look at our points tally now and it's been a terrific achievement by the players."
