Brighton basics key for March

17th April 2019, 11:52 by Jack Ogalbe

Solly March says Brighton need to go back to basics if they are to avoid Premier League relegation this season.

Following the ignominy of Saturday's 5-0 home defeat to Bournemouth, Chris Hughton's men were again second best at the Amex on Tuesday as they went down 2-0 to Cardiff.

That result means just two points separate the Seagulls and the 18th-place Bluebirds, and Brighton have an extremely tough end to the season, with games against Wolves, Tottenham, Newcastle, Arsenal and Manchester City all to come.

One thing in the south coast club's favour is their game in hand and March is determined to stay positive despite the team's run of five straight defeats in all competitions.

The 24-year-old believes time is on Brighton's side and has called on the side to adopt a more simplistic approach as they aim to survive.

He said: "We've got to go back to basics and to what we did last year. We were solid and we kept clean sheets and nicked 1-0's. That's the key. If we do that we'll be okay.

"We've got a game in hand and we're two points clear. But we've got to find something from somewhere soon otherwise it's not looking good."
