Brighton & Hove Albion winger Solly March believes it will be tougher to survive as Premier League starts in August.
While speaking to the club’s website, March touched upon the team’s experience, saying:
“We’ve been to all the stadiums now and we know what to expect. We know what the teams will be like and also the atmospheres as well.
“We’re used to all the cameras and everything else that comes with it, so a small bit of pressure is taken off.
“I think it’s going to be harder to stay up this season, but I’m confident that we’re good enough to do that.
“People say you haven’t got that buzz in the second season, but we won’t lose that. We’re ready to go and I’m sure we’ll be fine.”
Albion will travel to AFC Wimbledon for their third friendly tomorrow afternoon, and March is pleased to have games coming up after a tough pre-season schedule so far.
“You look forward to coming back but after about a week you’re struggling! It’s hard work but you’ve got to put the work in so you’re fit for the season.
“All the players look forward to coming back because after six weeks away from football you start to miss it.
“Once the ball comes out you start to enjoy it. We’ve got a few games coming up and that’s what we look forward to.”
