Albion skipper Gordon Greer has spoken of his excitement as Brighton chase for a play-off place.
He said: “It’s a hectic schedule but it should be exciting. We’ve got a strong squad and we’ve got a good chance.
“It’s a good position to be in, chasing a play-off place instead of fighting relegation.
“One of the reasons I left Scotland was that I never thought I could win much there. I never thought I could win a title.”
He admitted that the suspended Liam Bridcutt would be missed in the match against Burnley tomorrow (Friday 6 April), saying: “It’s a massive blow for us. Liam has shown this season and last season what a good player he is.”
Picking up on the positive attitude of the manager Gus Poyet, Greer added: “It will give somebody else a chance.”
He praised the fans for getting behind the team so vocally at the Amex when Burnley visited Falmer and won 1-0 after Albion were reduced to nine men early on.
Greer said: “Burnley at home was a crazy game. The fans were great.”
And while the Lancashire side lost 3-1 at home to Birmingham on Tuesday (3 April), he pointed out that they had beaten Portsmouth 5-1 at Fratton Park last Saturday (31 March).
With six matches to go, Greer indicated that he was more fired up than tired, saying: “I’m still looking forward to the games.”
