One step at a time

Michael Dawson insists the lads will not look beyond Bolton as they prepare for a season-defining eight days in the Premier League.

The most important week since we fought for fourth place in 2006 kicks-off against the Trotters at the Lane on Saturday. We then travel to Manchester City on Wednesday before the season's finale at Burnley on Sunday week, May 9.

We're currently in pole position of the four teams fighting for fourth but there are only two points between us (64) in fourth, Villa (64) in fifth, City (63) sixth and Liverpool (62) in seventh.

In another fascinating weekend, City play host to Villa while Liverpool take on title-favourites Chelsea at Anfield.

But the Lane is where it counts. "We know the importance of the games and the reward," said Michael. "We're in the driving seat and it's down to us.

"We need to focus on Bolton and trying to get those three points on Saturday. That's all that matters.

"They've got nothing to lose, they can come out and play with no fear. They will relish coming here and playing with that freedom. As a footballer, you want to win every game you go into so it will be tough and we know that.

"There are four teams fighting for that fourth spot and it's another massive weekend, but we have to concentrate on what we have to do."
