MARCH HAPPY WITH LATE CONTRIBUTION

18 December 2016

The Albion winger was pleased with his second-half display.


Brighton & Hove Albion winger Solly March was delighted to make such an important contribution from the bench, as the Seagulls secured a late victory over Birmingham City yesterday evening.

The 22-year-old crossed the ball for Anthony Knockaert’s equalising goal; which provided the platfrom for Glenn Murray to head the winner deep into stoppage time.

A very happy March said, “We weren’t great today but it was brilliant to get a late winner and another win away from home, so I’m very happy.

“We were far from our best and would have been happy with a draw, considering the way we played, but it was a massive bonus to get the winner.

“I had a bit of time to get into the game. I think I started well and my confidence grew when getting the assist for Anthony.

“Once we got the first goal, we pushed for the winner. They had their backs against the wall. You can sense when a team’s under the cosh, and I definitely sensed that.”

March says he’s happy to play wherever Albion boss Chris Hughton needs him, and believes he is getting back to his best after a long spell on the sideline.

“I like coming inside to pick up the ball, it creates space for Gaetan [Bong] to push on, and if the full-back doesn’t come with me, I can turn and drive at them.

“I maybe get more assists from the left, as I’m comfortable getting down the line and whipping balls across the front, but I’m happy playing on either wing.

“I’m always ready when I get a chance to play, but it’s the gaffer’s call. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to start soon.

“The last few weeks have been the best I’ve trained and I think I’m close to being back to 100 per cent, I feel good.”

The Seagulls maintained an eight-point gap between themselves and third-placed Reading, and March praised the quality of Albion’s squad this season and urged his team-mates to continue their good form.

“I don’t think the club’s changed much, but the squad definitely has. We’ve got more options and it’s great to have competition for places.

“If we can get two more wins before 2017, I think we’ll be in a great place. We’re confident we can do that, and we’ll be looking forward to next year.”
