Brighton & Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy is confident that the goals will start to flow and expressed his desire to get on the scoresheet more often himself, ahead of Saturday’s game against West Bromwich Albion at the Amex.
Duffy returns to the club after scoring his first senior goal for the Republic of Ireland in a 1-1 draw away at Georgia, and feels a number of players can contribute in the attacking third.
He said, “I’ve been disappointed with the number of goals I’ve scored for Brighton because I feel like I can get a lot more.

“I’m off the mark now for the season, so that’s given me confidence and I feel like I can score in every game if I believe in myself. Hopefully I can pop up with a few.
“We know when Anthony [Knockaert] is firing, he’ll be our dangerman and we’ve got Solly [March] and Murph [Jamie Murphy] that can chip in too. With Pascal [Gross] and Izzy [Brown] as well, we’ve got attacking players that like to score goals.
“A lot of people only look at the strikers, but if everyone can chip in, it will be better.”
The centre-back looked ahead to the West Brom game in more detail, and has been impressed with their progress since the summer transfer window.
“They’ve had a great start to the season, playing in a way which works for them.
“They’ve probably had one of the best transfer windows from the outside looking in; they look strong and probably want to kick on another level, but we’re at home and we know we’re good at the Amex.
“We’ve got to pick up points and we're confident of picking up points against any team at home.”
