What Trueform says about the Premier League relegation battle
Tom Ince’s stoppage-time strike pushed the Terriers up to 35 points from 34 games played, seven clear of the drop zone.
Victory at home against Everton in Town’s next match a week on Saturday could be enough for them to defy the odds and stay in the top flight.
“We had two games with this and Everton in a few weeks and knew that if we could pick up a few points in those, it would be a step in the right direction,” said Ince.
“It’s a massive three points and I’m chuffed for the lads, the whole club and the town.
“Everyone works so hard at this level to show what we can do. It’s a nice gap, but it’s not done yet.”
Potters and Saints are struggling
West Brom still look doomed, despite securing a shock 1-0 win at Manchester United, while Stoke and Southampton are odds-on to join them in falling down to the Championship.
The Potters have 28 points from 34 games after drawing 1-1 at West Ham and are now as short as 2/25 to be relegated.
Saints are 11/25 to lose their top-flight status after blowing a 2-0 lead when beaten 3-2 at home by Chelsea, with that result leaving them on 28 points from 33 matches.
Swansea can be backed at 9/2 to fall after a 1-1 home draw against Everton nudged the Welsh outfit up to 33 points from as many games.
Brighton are currently 13th on 35 points but there are still fears that they could be dragged into a relegation dogfight after losing 3-2 at Crystal Palace.
The Seagulls have to face the top four in the table and travel to Burnley in a daunting run-in, so 9/1 they go down may tempt some value seekers.
Chris Hughton commented: “This club have tried hard and waited a long time to get in this division and playing against the quality of what we’re going to play against in these last group of games very much comes with the territory.
“I don’t think you can afford to go into any game with a defeatist attitude. We need to make sure that we have a group of players who look forward to playing in every game.
“The run-in is challenging but that’s something that we knew.”
