Barnes undroppable for Poyet

07 February 2011 11:00
Brighton manager Gus Poyet admits the form of Ashley Barnes has forced his hand into picking all three of his strikers. Barnes was on target for the 12th time this season in Saturday's 4-2 win over Bristol Rovers after forming a three-pronged attack with Glenn Murray and Chris Wood. "Their form has made it difficult for me to pick the best two," said Poyet. "Ash, Chris and Glenn are doing really well and scoring goals. We tried to alternate them and that didn't work so I played the three of them. "That is down to Ash in particular, because he has been so good. How can a manager not play him?"
