Bridcutt found it so tough

The Argus: Liam Bridcutt Liam Bridcutt

Liam Bridcutt has revealed the agony of missing matches for Albion.

The stand-in skipper makes only his third start in four months at Middlesbrough today.

A combination of hernia surgery and recurrence of a pubic bone injury sidelined Bridcutt for 13 games.

The midfield star missed only eight Championship matches in the previous two seasons and was named player of the year both times.

Bridcutt told The Argus: “It’s probably one of the toughest things I’ve had to deal with. Since I’ve been at Brighton I’ve near enough played every game and trained every single day.

“To have an injury that stopped me from doing that was difficult mentally. I’ve had some great help from the medical staff.

“I knew it was only a matter of time before you are going to pick up injuries in your career. Touch wood this is my one done and dusted now.”

Bridcutt’s lengthy lay-off has made him keener than ever to become a regular again.

He said: “For me hunger never goes, because I always want to do the best I can, perform and play as many games as I can.

“It has probably given me that extra grit and determination to want it a bit more, because I’ve been out for a long time and it’s been hard for me sitting on the sidelines watching.

“I just can’t wait to get a good run of games now and see if we can progress.”

Bridcutt captains Albion at Middlesbrough, with Gordon Greer (calf) ruled out on his 33rd birthday.

A worthy captain and role model for any aspiring young player, I hope liam gets his place in the premier division with us rather than transferring to another team. Another good away win today lads as we start our push for the top. 2-0 Albion with Ulloa scoring second half when on from the bench. UTA.

I sympathise with Liam. When Stoke recognised that they were holding me back in my career and kindly allowed me to leave, I had a few months in the wilderness too. It was difficult when the calls didn't come in straight away from the likes of Chelsea. However I have found out since that Romain had my old Lyca mobile number which Stoke took off me when I left. I am now with Lebara. (Good deal by the way). Anyway, a big club did finally make the call and I am now happy planning my attack on the Europa League. Don't worry Liam, after the dark days of the Championship, your Premier League dream will come true.
