Brighton manager Gus Poyet has challenged his in-form side to stay at the top of League One for the rest of the season.

The Seagulls are now six points clear at the summit after Saturday's 2-0 win over Yeovil stretched their unbeaten run to 10 matches.

"It's up to us to just keep going. We need to go on proving it," said Poyet.

"We are where we deserve to be and it's up to other teams to try to stop us from playing."

Defender Adam El-Abd suffered a broken nose during Saturday's win but Poyet expects him to be fit to face promotion-rivals Peterborough next weekend.
