Matt Upson is a contender for player of the season

Matt Upson is a contender for player of the season

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Stephen Ward is tipping Matt Upson for player of the season.

Both defenders are likely to be among front runners for Albion’s end-of-term award.

Tomasz Kuszczak and Rohan Ince could also attract strong support.

Ward has been a big hit at left-back after signing on loan from Wolves.

But he appreciates the help he has received from Upson, the Seagulls’ left-sided centre-back.

Ward said: “It has been a real coup for me playing alongside Matty.

“I think he has been outstanding.

“He will definitely be right up there.”

Upson by a distance for me, reminds me of lawrenson in some ways, not as good on the ball, but sees the game way ahead of everyone else, even if he has lost half a yard in pace, does everything simple with ease .. That's why his performances have been overlooked .. For me best defender in this division.. Best central defender for a very long time at the club.
Let's hope we sign him on again if we are in championship.
