Gary Megson: ''Middlesbrough have not gone at all - nowhere near gone - and if they beat us they are right back in it.

''They have got some real top quality players. They beat Liverpool recently and I don't think many people expected that. It's far from over.

''Ourselves and Fulham were deemed to be relegated at this time last year.

''People looked at us with five games left and it was openly out there that Bolton had gone.

''Those people were wrong. We took 11 points from the last 15 and we hadn't done anything like that in previous games last season.

''The consensus of opinion was that Derby, Fulham and ourselves would get relegated, but two of us got out of it, so there is still everything to play for with every club down there at the moment.

''The relegation issue is between nine clubs, from West Brom up to ourselves, and we want to try and get out of that relegation area as soon as we can.

''I don't think there's a single club in the entire Premier League who has not got something to play for.

''We cannot set a points target because we don't know what the points target is, but we're certainly better off now than where we were at this stage last season.''
