Brighton boss Gus Poyet is targeting five more wins from ten games to assure the Seagulls of automatic promotion from League One.

A 1-0 win over Notts County made it nine home wins in a row for Poyet's men who are now 10 points clear.

Poyet said: "When we went to the top of the table back in September, I thought we needed two points per game from then on to maintain it and that would take us to 92 points.

"We're a few points ahead of that target, being on 77 points now, so another 15 points should do it. That's five wins out of the last 10 games."

He added: "The job is not done. Other teams will do their best to try to stop us from playing so we have to be professional in every way."
