Albion's defence praised the strength of character in the dressing room.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior believes the squad’s confidence has been a determining factor in their impressive performances on the pitch.

The 31-year-old feels buoyed by his teammates’ self-belief and says it is having a positive effect on his own game.

He said, “Every time I look around the dressing room and I am seeing the people that are putting on the same shirt as me, I know they are not going to let me down and that makes me not want to let them down either. So when I come to training, I am getting more and more confident.”

“It is not just the players that are starting, but also the players that are on the bench and even those that aren’t making the squad, everyone is in it together.”

“I look around at a whole group and I am seeing the strength, the determination and the quality of those players and I am really enjoying playing with them. There is a real hunger amongst the group to succeed.”


The full-back also acknowledged the manager’s impact on the squad and how his experience has translated through to the players.

“He has been saying the same thing to us all from the get go, we know everything that is expected of us every game and I think it shows in the consistency in our performance and the consistency in our results.”

“The manager has been fantastic all season. He is really calm, but very clear in his message. Just because we are in the position we are now, there is no reason to change anything, if it is not broken then don’t try and fix it.

“It would be fantastic for the club if we can get promoted, what a story it would be. It’s every player’s dream to play in the Premier League, but to be honest, I think sometimes you have detach yourself from that and not get carried away.”

“We have to go out and play and enjoy the situation we find ourselves in. Give absolutely everything we can on the pitch and hopefully it all works out for us come the end of the season.”

Rosenior has also been impressed with youngsters in the first team and believes they have the talent to play at the very highest level.

“I have said it before, but players like Lewis Dunk, Connor Goldson and Solly March have the technical and mental qualities to go far.”

“I am sure they will go on to have fantastic careers and I am hoping it will be with the Albion in the Premier League.”
