Solly March gets away from Mason Greenwood.

Solly March says the left wing-back role he’s adopted for Graham Potter’s side this term is one he's happily taking in his stride.

The 26-year-old has started all four league games this season and feels he is improving with every game he plays in the position.

He said, “When I came into the side I was more of a winger, but I'm enjoying being at left wing-back at the moment and I feel quite settled. It's a role that I've learnt as I've gone on - and the more I play there, the better I feel I'm doing.

Albion celebrate March's late equaliser against Manchester United.

“I can play in a number of positions, which is good for both me and the team, and since the head coach came in, I've played in pretty much every position, apart from centre-back. But wherever I am on the pitch, the challenge is to do my best and contribute to the team."

Albion make the journey up the A23 this Sunday to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, a game that March is aware means more than most to Albion supporters.

“It's the first game you look for on the fixture list, so we want to get a result for our fans and the club. It's a shame they can’t be there, but hopefully we can give them a showing to be proud of.

“It will be a different experience without supporters but I’m sure the match will still be as competitive as it always is.

Solly March has been one of Albion's outstanding performers so far this campaign.

“The game back in March last year at Selhurst Park was a great day and that same season the home match was a memorable one too.

“It was nice for the supporters that we were able to do the double and we want to make some more memories like those.”
