Solly March drives forward with the ball for the Seagulls.

Brighton & Hove Albion winger Solly March feels ready for the step up to Premier League football and believes that his adaptability can be a key asset.

The 22-year-old put in an impressive first-half display against Crawley on Saturday, where he also found the target.

He said, “I don’t mind playing either side, I’m quite versatile. I think being more clinical in the Premier League will be key, because I get chances and get into the right positions - it’s just about taking them.

“I’m confident that I can affect games as much as I did in the Championship, and it also helps massively with Bruno behind you. He’s a fit guy for a 36-year-old as well; he keeps running up and down the pitch which helps me because I can play him in to cross the ball.”

The England under-21 international reflected on the Crawley game, and is relishing the competition for wide places in the team.

“I was happy to get through it and get more fitness. It was nice to get an early chance and a goal, which was a confidence booster.

“We have a number of different wingers at the moment and we’re all happy and prepared to step in when required and we all want to do well.”
