28 year-old Brighton midfielder Beram Kayal seems to be looking forward to the game tonight at Newcastle and he certainly thinks it’s going to be a massive game for Brighton.
The 30 times capped Israeli International joined the south coast club 18 months ago from Celtic, after playing at the Scottish giants for five years.
Beram Kayal – it’s going to be a massive game tonight
This is what the skillful central midfielder has said in the West Sussex County Times in anticipation of the tough game on Tyneside tonight:
“I think it’s going to be one of our biggest games. We need to be ready, focused and know our strengths.”
“We go into it with a lot of confidence, we respect Newcastle and know they have big players and a big manager with a lot of experience, but we are going to do a job.”
“It’s going to be massive. I have heard a lot about this stadium. It’s a massive club, massive fans, so it’s going to be a great atmosphere, great experience for all of us and hopefully we will go to them and get the result we want.”
“It’s not going to be easy, but professional players love the challenge against these teams.” “We have done everything this week in preparation to be ready.”
It’s an important game for Newcastle and if we can win it we will have won four games in a row before the two week International break – after surprisingly losing the first two games in the Championship.
But if we lose it that will be the third defeat in the first five league games and that wouldn’t be good.
So the result is important tonight.
If we win it will take us above Brighton in the league and at the moment they are second top.
