Gus Poyet told Brighton and Hove News this morning that, although the players need to take each game as it comes, the club is on a good run of results so there should be no lack of confidence in the squad.
The Albion boss said how difficult it was to select the right midfield combination but that he had to make those decisons.
Players like Ryan Harley and Romain Vincelot know where they stand and must always be prepared should something can change to get them involved with the squad. They should not just give up.
Poyet praised captain Gordon Greer, saying that he leads by example on the pitch and the training ground and that he is a different type of captain to his previous choice, the now-departed Andrew Crofts. Greer is more demanding than his predecessor and encourages others to train as hard as he does.
On Doncaster, Poyet remarked that they were fighting for there lives, suggesting it was more complicated than people think.
Doncaster have a lot of experience, although Poyet is not that suprised to see players such as El Hadji Diouf and Pascal Chimbonda there as that is how quickly things change at this level of football.
So far, he has had no reports from any of the players who were on international duty on Wednesday night and is not aware of any problems.
Finally Poyet said how pleased he was with the loan duo from Manchester City, Gai Assulin and Abdul Razak.
He hinted that there was more to see from Assulin as he made playing football look so easy.
