Brighton News: Gross urges Seagulls to take their chance

11 months ago

In the latest Brighton news, midfielder Pascal Gross admits the recent break has done the squad the world of good as they prepare for back-to-back home games.

The international break has allowed coach Chris Hughton to work with his players at a warm-weather training camp.

Only a handful of players left for international duty, meaning Hughton was able to work on tactics ahead of the final eight games in the Premier League.

The Seagulls are 12th in the table on 34 points and they have a game in hand over a number of their relegation rivals.

Brighton are currently six points clear from the relegation zone and they face Leicester and Huddersfield in their next two league matches.

After the squad returned to England this week, Gross admits the break did them the world of good ahead of the final few games.

He told the club’s official website: “The recent results we’ve had at home have been very good. We’re always happy to play at the Amex and it’s important that the next two league matches are there.

“I’m quite happy with how the season has gone for me, but I can only do it when we’re playing well as a team. Come the end of the season, I’ll only be happy if we’ve stayed up.

“It was a very good trip. We had great facilities there, a very nice hotel with good food. We also had some great weather and we enjoyed it as a team. It worked well for the team last season when I wasn’t here, so we hope it can have the same effect again.

“Hopefully we can finish the season strongly and stay up in the Premier League.”

Brighton will be looking for revenge this weekend at the Amex after losing the first meeting against Leicester 2-0 and they are 9/5 with Bet365 to grab all three points.
