Brighton news: March relishing run-in

1 year ago

In the latest Brighton news, Solly March claims he is looking forward to their tough run-in and feels one more win could be enough to stay up.

The Seagulls, who can be backed at 16/1 to be relegated with Paddy Power, have enjoyed a decent first campaign in the Premier League and head to Crystal Palace on Saturday sitting 13th, seven points clear of the bottom three.

With six games still to play, March believes that one more victory will see them stay clear of the drop zone and subsequently secure a second successive season in the Premier League.

Saturday’s trip will be the first time the two rivals have met in the top-flight at Selhurst Park since April 1981 and March is hoping they can get the much-needed three points in the bag.

March said: “It’s always a big game against them. The supporters will be up for it and we’ll be up for it. Hopefully we can put in a better performance and get the points.

“A win (from the remaining games) is always going to help and especially if we beat teams around us like Palace but we’ve got to earn it and hopefully we can do that.”

Brighton face a tough run after Saturday’s outing, with Tottenham, Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool still to play.

However, March says he is relishing the prospect of taking on the “big teams” and is confident his side can continue to collect points.

He added: “We know we’ve got hard games but they’re games to look forward too. We beat Arsenal here, so why can’t we beat other big teams like Manchester United or Tottenham? We’re looking forward to it.

“We’ll go game by game and try to win every game and get points from every game.”
