BALDOCK PLEASED WITH ALBION'S REACTION

16 March 2017

Albion's forward praised the squad's mentality.


Brighton & Hove Albion striker Sam Baldock praised the way the side has bounced back from a patchy run of form, to maintain their advantage in the automatic promotion race.
 
Baldock was on target in the 3-0 victory over Derby County last Friday, and believes he and his team-mates showed a good reaction following a 3-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest.
 
He said: “We couldn’t focus on that defeat because we had another game straight away.  That’s what it was like. We had to go to Rotherham two days after playing Forest, and it was about focusing on that opposition and trying to exploit their weaknesses.
 
“I don’t think you can dwell on the past because that’s when you come unstuck. If you don’t pick up the next result, you’re looking back on two bad results.
 
“If you’re a thinking team or a thinking person, then you’ll be thinking about more problems and potentially more bad results.”

The striker also highlighted the strength within the squad to cope with injuries, in particular the string of fine performances from Uwe Huenemeier in the absence of Shane Duffy.
 
“He’s [Duffy] a big loss and has been one of our best players this year. He’s been very solid and formed a great partnership with Dunky, but credit to Uwe, he’s been brilliant in training.
 
“He’s not moaned and got on with everything. His opportunity has come and he’s taken it. I’m sure he’ll continue to do it because he’s a very good player.
 
“It’s a squad game and players know they’ll get their opportunities at some point. Whoever it is, they’re training properly and training hard. Credit to the staff, they’re keeping everyone on their toes and we know it’s going to be a squad effort that gets us over the line.”
