Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jodie Brett expects an exciting match when the side take on former club Everton in the FA Women’s Super League this afternoon.

Brett, who joined the club from the Toffees in the summer, is looking forward to returning to her former team and commented on the positive spirit in the Albion camp.

She said, “It’s an exciting game for us as a club and for me as an individual after coming here from Everton last year. It will be nice to go back and see some friendly faces.

“As a team we have to take confidence from our performances. We take our time to review them, and we’ve taken a lot away from the games we’ve played so far.

“The performances are getting better each week, we’ve been working hard in training and will try to implement what we have learned there onto the pitch against Everton.

“We have good spirit and great personalities within the team. It’s important that throughout the season we keep the environment lively because there is still a lot of time to go.

“One game not going right isn’t a bad thing, because we have plenty of time to make it work.

“The vibe since I have been here has always been positive.”

Everton currently sit one place and one point above the Seagulls and the 22-year-old went on to talk about how she sees the game panning out.

“I expect the game to be end-to-end and I think it will be played at a fast pace.

“Both teams will be hard to break down and difficult to beat and both teams will be going for the win. It will be seen as a game where both sides have a chance.

“As a squad we take each game as it comes, no matter whether you are playing Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Bristol or Yeovil, every team offers something different and that’s one of the best things about this league.

“Every team poses a different challenge. At the end of the day its 11v11 on the football pitch, and each game is just as important as the other no matter who you are playing.”

Albion supporters can follow the action from today's game on the club’s official Twitter feed and a report and match reaction will be uploaded after the match.
