Brighton News: Dunk proud of efforts

9 months ago

In the latest Brighton news, Lewis Dunk admits he is proud of Brighton’s efforts this season and has called for one last push to ensure they do not suffer relegation.

Brighton, who claimed a vital point at home to Tottenham in their most recent Premier League outing on Tuesday, have not tasted victory since beating Arsenal on March 4.

With four games still left to play they occupy 13th spot, eight points clear of the bottom three, and could still potentially be dragged into a relegation scrap.

The Seagulls have undoubtedly performed better than expected during their maiden Premier League campaign but cannot afford to sit back just yet.

Dunk, who played a huge role in helping them to win promotion, has demanded focus in the remaining four fixtures against Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

The central defender has revealed his pride in their exploits this term but admits boss Chris Hughton is refusing to allow their levels of concentration to slip until safety is mathematically confirmed.

“We’re not quite there and anything can happen. We’ve still got a job to do. The manager keeps saying that and we’ll keep going until it’s done and we’ll keep fighting,” Dunk said.

“We’ve got a tough run-in but we’re confident as a group and have got to make sure we step over the line. We’re 13th in the league still and everyone thought we were going to go down. At the moment we’re doing very well and I’m proud of everyone.”

Brighton can be backed at 12/5 to win their next Premier League match on April 28 when they travel away to Burnley, who are priced at 6/5 to come out on top, while the draw is available at 11/5 with Sky Bet.
