Upson: Let's be bold

9:00am Thursday 18th April 2013 in Albion By Brian Owen
Matt Upson has urged Albion to be bold in the final push for the play-offs.
The Seagulls can move to the brink of a top-six finish if they beat Blackpool on Saturday, especially if other results go their way.
They will have extra attacking options with Kazenga LuaLua, Will Buckley and Ashley Barnes available after injury and suspension.
Upson was inches away from giving Albion a win at Peterborough on Tuesday when his header hit the underside of the bar.
Now the former England defender has urged them to build on that battling point with a command performance at The Amex.
Upson said: “It felt like a set-piece was going to settle the game at Peterborough.
“Hopefully at home we can control the game a little better on a better pitch and with the way we play.
“We need to really push forward and freshen up some attacking options and switch people around and give people a little bit of a change.”
Upson, who is out of contract at Stoke this summer, has been key to a defence which has conceded just one goal in the last four games. But thoughts about his future will remain on hold until Albion’s season is over.
He said: “There are so many things in the balance. I can’t possibly say what will happen.”
