Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper believes the team must stick to their philosophies, and identified the finer details that need changing in order to return to winning ways against Huddersfield Town this weekend.
The Seagulls, who are without a Premier League victory in 2019, welcome the Terriers to the Amex Stadium on Saturday, and Propper is focused on making the changes needed to edge away from the bottom three.
He said, “We know we’re getting closer to the positions that we don’t want to be, but we also know that we’ve played well and created chances — it’s only small things that we have to change.
“We have 11 games to go and all of them are now really important. Of course it would be nice to get a win in the first one.
“We have to do the same things as we always do — that’s the most important thing, don’t change what we stand for as a team.
“We know that we have a lot of quality and enough to stay in this league. Stay supporting us, we know what we have to do and we will do it.”
Propper fired his first goal for the club in Tuesday night’s defeat at Leicester City, and the Dutchman challenged his team-mates to start turning performances into points.
“We’ve had a difficult period after New Year’s Eve and we haven’t won any games, but I’m confident that we’ll get the results we need.
“We haven’t played that badly, but we’ve had some problems scoring goals and we’ve conceded too many goals. It’s difficult to win games like that.
“It’s really close [down the bottom of the league table] and it was similar last season. We now have to look at ourselves and get the points we need.”
