GREER WON’T MISS FELLOW SCOT

3 October 2015



Brighton & Hove Albion captain Gordon Greer admits he won't be too disappointed not to see fellow Scot David Marshall between the sticks for Cardiff City on Saturday.

Cardiff will be without number one goalkeeper Marshall for the trip to the Amex, as the serves the second game of a two-match ban after seeing red at Rotherham last month.
 
Greer told seagulls.co.uk, "Last year at the Amex Marshall was outstanding against us. It was probably one of the best goalkeeping displays for any team I have seen against us.

"He pulled off a good few saves and he's a great goalkeeper. He's a good guy as well but as much as it will be good to see him it's good that he's not available."

Meanwhile Greer has hailed teammate Andrew Crofts for the way he has handled two serious and long-term knee injuries.

The club captain was full of praise for Crofts, after he was named in the matchday squad for the first time in almost a year at Bolton Wanderers.

Crofts suffered an anterior cruciate knee injury last October, his second ACL injury in a desperately unfortunate 2014 - but Greer is backing him to come back as strong and as fit as ever.

"It's another big plus for us [having Crofts back]. Crofty's had two really bad injuries but he's so fit and so dedicated and he's back involved now, which is great for us.

"It is good to have strength in depth, and to have people like Crofty training. His desire to comeback hasn't surprised me, it's the nature of the man.

"He's a great guy to have around the place and instead of looking at the negatives he always looks at the positives.

"He went away, said he was going to get stronger and fitter and that when he comes back he will be even better. He's set his sights high so I'm sure he'll come back and be even better than he was before."





"I think it's a really strong squad. We've got good strength in depth and a lot of options - different options for different games which is good."

"If you are in the team and not doing as well as you possible should be there's somebody there who can step in and make it difficult for you.

"There's competition all over the park for places and not just somebody there, somebody who is pushing those who are playing.

"It's possibly the strongest squad I've been involved in. We've had strong squads in the past but maybe not as big.

Crofts's return has bolstered Chris Hughton's midfield options and Greer believes this current Albion squad is the best during his five years at the club.
