Anders Dreyer celebrates scoring against Arsenal back in January.

Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 midfielder Anders Dreyer is adapting well to life on the south coast following his arrival from Esbjerg in the summer.

The Denmark youth international was top scorer in the Danish first division last term with 18 goals, and took his tally to four for the Albion following Monday night’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal in Premier League 2 Division 1.

He said, “I’ve settled in well and really like living down here - I went home for five days over Christmas to spend time with the family, but now I’m looking forward to 2019.

“I found a very nice place to stay in Worthing and I live by myself, which is fine for me. I have lots of friends over who want to see what this part of England is like.

“I feel really good here at the moment and things are going well for me."


Xavier Amaechi had given the visiting side the lead at The People’s Pension Stadium, before Dreyer’s double was cancelled out by Trae Coyle late on, and the winger reflected honestly about the contest.

“I don’t think we imposed ourselves on the game enough in the first half, they got their goal and we knew we had to improve.

“We spoke about it at half-time and began the second period very strongly, we tried to press them and did that very well.

“We scored two goals, they got one back but it was a big second-half performance - it was almost perfect."


The 20-year-old’s second strike of the evening saw him beat three opposition defenders before firing the Seagulls ahead - he looked back on the stylish solo effort and the team’s fortunes so far this term.

“I was really happy with both, but the second one is my favourite.

“I just kept running and managed to get clear past the three opposition - luckily for me it went in. I should have had a third as well.

“So far this season I’m very pleased with how the team and myself are performing.

“We’ve adjusted well since being promoted, we’re a strong side and we’ve built on the work we did last season, it’s a fantastic group with a lot of character."
