Brighton boss Guy Poyet said in a press conference today that he is approaching Saturdays clash at home to Huddersfield with a positive attitude despite admitting it is likely to be “a tight game”.
Poyet acknowledges the change of manager at Huddersfield could prove a challenge for the Seagulls who will face a Huddersfield team adapting to a new system under new boss Mark Robins.
In a statement regarding the game, Poyet said, “It would be fantastic for us to win on Saturday for a final push towards a good playoff position at the end of the season”.
Poyet has clarified that his team should not be thinking about the new regime at Huddersfield but instead should be concentrating on the pitch to stand a better chance at winning.
Andrea Orlandi, after watching his former team Swansea triumph at Wembley, said “It’s gonna be tough against Huddersfield who are fighting for their lives. In the Championship anyone can beat anyone. Easy does not exist in this league”.
With three wins in four and only one goal conceded in six hours of match time, the Albion are on a good run of form and on paper dispatching Huddersfield at the Amex should not be a problem.
Right winger David Lopez shared this view by adding, “We are in a good way after three wins in four. We are very confident and are pleased we are playing well and getting wins as a result. I am pleased to be helping the team by scoring goals and on other areas of the pitch and I hope to continue like this.”
Lopez is looking for a first promotion in his professional career and he expressed pleasure at the fact that ‘Spanish Dave’ is now a firm favourite of the Albion faithful.
