RafaRafa Benitez knows that Robbie Fowler's first half winner today will give him plenty of thought in the decision about whether to offer the player a new contract.

Speaking after today's 1-0 victory against Bolton at Anfield, Rafa the gaffer said:

"That was good for Robbie to score on his birthday, and I know that it means I will be answering questions about his contract situation."

"All I can say is that I want to see him scoring goals and playing well; if he does that it will be good for everybody."

Benitez believes his side require only one more win to secure a top-four finish after moving 12 points clear of fourth-placed Tottenham.

"With Spurs and Arsenal having to play each other, it means we probably only need one more win to make sure of a top-four finish," added Benitez.

"We are very close now to securing third place, with second still something we have as a possibility."
