Brighton & Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior feels the international break has come at an ideal time for the squad, after an impressive display at Watford on Saturday.
The experienced full-back drew plenty of positives from the goalless draw at Vicarage Road and is convinced there is sufficient quality in the squad for Albion to hold their own in the Premier League.
He said, “It’s a good thing [timing of break]; and we can take stock of the first three games.
“It also gives the club time in terms of recruitment to get the players in that we need. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but we can look back on a positive performance, analyse it and go again.
“We’ve got West Brom at home next and if we can win that, we’ve got four points from four games, and that kind of total can keep you up at the end of the season.
“We’re not far off at all and we’ve had two difficult games at the start of the season, but we’ve got more than enough to compete at this level.”
Rosenior revealed how he uses his experience to help the younger members of the squad, and stressed the importance of not looking too far ahead.
“In the Championship we looked at blocks of five games, this time it was a block of three.
“We’ve now got four league games before the next international break and if we can take what we can from those games, then we can be in really good shape come October.
“I have little chats with the players that haven’t been there [Premier League], as do Sidds [Steve Sidwell] and Bruno, who’s played in La Liga.
“In this league you can go five games without winning a game, but you can still be in with a chance of staying up.
“It’s about keeping your confidence levels up, not getting too down when things don’t go your way and having the resilience to play at this level. I look at the squad and I think we’ve got that.”
