Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe stressed that his side had "won nothing yet" after late goals from Yann Kermorgant and Callum Wilson put them four points clear at the top of the Championship with a 2-0 success at Brighton.
The Cherries' sixth win in their last nine games has given them an advantage over nearest rivals Norwich and Watford with four games remaining, but Howe believes promotion places are still very much up for grabs.
He said: "We've four games left now and we've got to look at taking 12 points; we have to try and win every game. "It wouldn't surprise me if one of the sides at the top wins all their last games. Nothing has been won yet. "I won't accept that we are favourites, I still think it is anyone's. "This league has a habit of throwing up surprises and we must stay strong to the end." Kermorgant now boasts 16 goals this season and Wilson 21, and Howe said he was "really proud" of setting a new club goalscoring record. The Cherries now total 106 goals in all competitions and Howe said: "It will be the goalscorers that will get the headlines, but this win was a team achievement. I'm really proud of our goalscoring record this season and it is a team thing. The lads deserve a lot of credit."
