GOLDSON WANTS TO BUILD MOMENTUM

1 January 2016


Connor Goldson wants to follow a strong first game on his Brighton & Hove Albion debut with a return to winning ways against his hometown club, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The central defender produced a mature display against Ipswich, as he deputised for Gordon Greer, and is in line to continue should the captain not recover in time for today's game.

If he does feature, he says he will be treating the match like any other, even though he's lining up against the club he spent six years with as a youngster.

He said, "It’s another game of football, an important league game in which we want to get three points. We need to win the game.

"I used to go to a few Wolves games when I was younger, but it's probably more special for my dad and for my family.

"My dad is a big Wolves fan. When I was growing up it was Wolves, Wolves, Wolves, I think because my dad was such a big Wolves fan it kind of put me off!

"I was there in the younger ages and then left and moved to Shrewsbury. We had a new manager in the under-14s and he stopped playing me.

"I stopped enjoying my football, so my dad pulled me out of there and we went to Shrewsbury the year after."

Goldson says his dad's loyalties will lie with his son and Albion for this game, adding, "My dad is down for New Year’s with me to come and watch the game.

"He would prefer a home win for us, watching his son play. I’ve played Wolves a few times for Shrewsbury and he would prefer for us to win."

Meanwhile, the Albion defender has warned of the threat posed by a Wolves side who have got back to winning ways over the festive period.

"I watched the game before the Charlton one and they have won their last two. I think it was getting a bit nervy for them beforehand because they had lost a few games.

"They have picked up now and they are a good side. They have got good individuals, so I think we will have to be wary of them.

"However, we are near the top of the league for a reason and we will need to stamp our authority on the game."
