Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno urged the club’s supporters to create an electric atmosphere when Huddersfield Town visit the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as both teams look to take a huge step towards Premier League safety.

The Terriers sit three points behind Chris Hughton’s side in 16th position, and Albion’s skipper admitted there is extra importance riding on this weekend’s clash on the south coast.

He said, “It’s going to be like a cup final for both teams. We’re in a similar situation and it’s going to be so important. After that game, we’ll see where we are for the last six games of the season.

“We’ll approach the game as calm as possible, you cannot get stressed, you just have to play your game.

“It’s going to be a special game and we’re going to need the fans as always. They’re always next to us, supporting us, and we’ll need that electric atmosphere.

“They can be the extra man on the pitch and we want to play with them.”

The Seagulls have lost back-to-back fixtures in the Premier League, but Bruno believes the team can take encouragement from their season so far, and is now focused on getting over the finish line.

“To get promoted and play as we’ve been playing, it’s not easy. We’ve been playing a really good brand of football.

“But we know the margins in the Premier League, they are really small. The top six teams are almost in another league, but we’ve proven already that we can beat them.

“Any mistake you make in the Premier League, you get punished. We’ve been really good, but there are still a lot of areas where we can improve.

“Right now, we just need to finish the job - we’re not safe yet. We need a few more points and we’ve got a massive chance on Saturday.”
