Duffy pleased with points haul

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton defender Shane Duffy has hailed their points haul over the last week and insists they are confident ahead of facing Stoke.

The Seagulls are still very much alive and kicking in the Premier League after claiming four points from their last two outings – against Southampton and West Ham.

Chris Hughton’s men currently sit 13th in the table, three points clear of the bottom three, and will have the opportunity to build on that position over the weekend against the Potters at the bet365 Stadium.

Duffy insists Brighton are feeling much more confident again following the upturn in results and claims they always felt this run of fixtures would provide them with a decent return.

“We’ve looked at these fixtures and thought they’re the best chances of us getting a run together,” Duffy told the club’s official website.

“Four points is a good week in this league, against two teams around us – so bring on the next two games. We’re confident going into the game against Stoke on Saturday.”
