Propper – New boys can keep us up

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton midfielder Davy Propper insists the club's extra firepower up front should be enough to see them stay in the Premier League.

After missing out on several summer targets, manager Chris Hughton was finally able to strengthen his side last month.

The Seagulls broke their transfer record to sign PSV Eindhoven forward Jurgen Locadia for £14million, while Leicester City’s Leonardo Ulloa returned to the AMEX on loan from Leicester City.

Both players could be involved in the squad on Saturday for the clash with Stoke and Propper believes they will make a massive impact.

He told The Argus: “So far he (Locadia) looks good. I think he is almost ready.

“We now have five strikers and they are not all the same. You can change them in a particular situation, which is good. That will be very important. We don’t concede much. It could make the difference.”
