Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton defender eager to get over the line

24th April 2019, 16:17 by Bobbie Jackson

Lewis Dunk has urged Brighton to take a big step towards Premier League survival when they face Newcastle on Saturday.

The Seagulls haven't tasted victory in the Premier League since March 9 when they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

A run of six games without a win, losing five, has left them just three points clear of the relegation zone with three games left to play.

Newcastle are next on the agenda following Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Tottenham, before they finish the campaign with a trip to Arsenal and a home clash against Manchester City.

Saturday's outing provides their best opportunity to claim three points and Dunk is keen to see Albion make the most of home advantage.

Dunk told the club's official website: "We're still in a good position - it's in our hands and it's up to us as to how we get over the line.

"We've got some tough games coming up but so have Cardiff - whoever does better stays up, so it's up to us to keep ourselves in this league now."
