HUGHTON HAILS THE PLAYERS' MENTALITY

11 April 2016

The Albion manager looks ahead to the final few games of the season.


Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton remains confident that his players will hold their nerve in the final six games of the season.

Hughton feels his squad has the right mentality to deal with the hectic run-in, as they aim to secure a top-two finish.

He said, “This period is probably no different to any other period in the season, only we're now running out of games.

“For whatever reason, most will look at the final two games [v Derby and Middlesbrough], which are very tough on paper. But you could win those two and not win the others, the league is that competitive. I don’t see any game being easier than the others. We’ve got as hard a run-in as anybody else.

“As a team, I’d like to think we can learn on the experiences we’ve had this season and we’ve had to fight for everything. That’s been the biggest drive for us.

“There have not been circumstances of players being carried away and we’ve got some good experience, with Liam [Rosenior] and Gordon [Greer], these are players that have been around for a while.”

LATEST NEWS FROM SEAGULLS.CO.UK 

The Seagulls boss has been delighted with his side’s impressive away form throughout the season, which has seen them lose only twice on their travels.

“That’s one area that has given us the most confidence. Most teams are going to get better results at home as opposed to away from home. If you are a team that can go away from home, hold your own and have a chance to get results, then it’s a wonderful confidence booster for the squad.

“The team has shown great resilience away from home, so that’s been a big benefit for us this season.”
