On-loan defender Greg Halford says he is ready to step up to the plate for Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 29-year-old, who arrived at the Amex Stadium from Nottingham Forest last week, could well feature in Albion’s next game at Norwich City, with centre-backs Lewis Dunk suspended and Aaron Hughes currently undergoing treatment for an ankle injury.

Halford told Seagull, the club’s matchday magazine, “Obviously the team needs cover at centre-half. I can add a bit of height, I can score goals and obviously I can defend, which is my main attribute. I’m here to help the team and manager in any way I can.

“For one reason or another I’ve not been able to get a game for Forest this season, which has been really frustrating because all you want to do is play football.

“Obviously I want to get as many minutes as I can while I’m down here but also I want to help the side win a few games on the way. Hopefully I can now kick-start my season.”


Halford, who has penned a one-month loan deal, made his Albion debut as a late sub against Wigan Athletic last Tuesday and says working with former defender Sami Hyypia will be beneficial from a personal standpoint.

He added, “I think that’s where I will end my career, as a centre-back, so I’ll be learning as much as I possibly can off him [Sami] during my time here,”

“I’m 29 now, but I’m certainly still learning things around football, and how football’s run. I always take in as much as I possibly can and that will be no different while I’m down here.”
