Jesse Lingard has been told to keep turning on the magic – by his skipper and England boss.

The on-loan star has revealed he was given encouragement by England under-21s manager Gareth Southgate on one of Albion’s recent treks north.

Lingard, pictured right, has scored in both games since then and played his best football for the club.

He aims for more of the same at Huddersfield on Good Friday.

Lingard said: “I spoke to Gareth Southgate last week when we stayed at St George’s Park after we played Barnsley and he said he has got high hopes for me.

“England under-21s is a massive aim for me. I’ve always wanted to play for the under-21s and try and get into the first team.

“But I’m taking it step by step now and see where it takes me.”

Lingard, who has four under-21 caps, is likely to go up against his fellow Warrington boy Tommy Smith in a revamped Huddersfield back line.

The Terriers have lost defenders Joel Lynch and Peter Clarke to suspension.

Albion skipper Gordon Greer says fans are starting to see the best of the forward player brought in from Manchester United at the end of February.

Greer said: “Jesse has been outstanding in games but he just hadn’t got his goal.

“But he is a great lad and he has got so much quality.

“I think the fans are starting to see that now.”

Huddersfield, whose run of nine games without a win has left them just six points clear of the drop zone, will also be missing ten-goal top scorer James Vaughan to a knee injury.

Think Greer is spot on the games I've watched Jesse play he's played well but didn't have the luck or the service in front off goal now were playing more faster attacking football he's reaping the benefits in front off goal and long may it continue, Jesse seems to have found the net at the right time for our playoff push!!
Southgate quick call to Jesse maybe Friday morning!!
Up the Albion!!

There's no doubt Jesse is a quality player and we're reaping the benefit now that we're playing at a faster more attacking tempo. It would be great to have him next season but that will depend on whether we get promoted or not.
We'd better get it done then. UTA

It has taken a few games for this lad to get used to the rest of the squad and for them to get used to him. We are beginning to see the best of him, perhaps being in the starting line up helps in that respect.
Looks like an exciting end to the season coming up. All Albion need to do is win four of our remaining matches!

I said on here a few week ago that if Lingard starts scroing we'll make the play-offs and if he doesn't, we won't.

Currently looking good. Confident he'll keep it up.

Sounds like a good time to play Huddersfield. Hopefully we've been through our bad patch and luck is starting to go our way. Certainly the timing of the Leicester match (a few days after they'd been promoted was very lucky it has to be said).

Onwards and upwards!

Andrews, Ward and Lingard, three excelent loan deals that are now, and have in the past many months, served us well. Stephens, another good find, I wonder who deserves a pat on the back for getting these guys to Brighton?

Something that is good, other than Lingard's contributions, that should come as a result of what Lingard is doing ont he park, is that other big name clubs might well see Brighton as a good place to send their younger players on loan.

I know many on here have complained about our style of play, and have said how much better it is now, but the fact is, just about all of the opposing managers, and several pundits, agree that Brighton play, 'good football.'
I think that the real problem we had for some months was that we were unable to replace Crofts, in Lingard we now have that midfield threat back again and when Lingard goes, maybe Solly March will take his chance along side Crofts next season and we will carry on from where we left off.

I think Dale Stephens has something to do with it also Mr Vegas.

I wouldn't argue against that Golddene, I think Stephens was a great find. My point was more about what Lingard is providing us and what one of our possible options will be once he is gone.

If we turned to the market to try and buy a Lingard MK11 for next season I doubt we would find one, young lads as good as he is have already been snapped up and even if we did find one, a prem club would out bid us.
It's possible Solly or Stephens will step into his place next year and Crofts will be back.

I am looking forward to the day when our new academy can produce our own, 'Lingard.'

Errrr...So will Hoskins...hopefully he will be given a chance next season. As for Leo, I dont expect him to be at club next season nor do I Buckley. Ward haspublically been told hes not wanted at Wolves next season so it would be good to get his signature asap. No matter what div we are in next season there will be alot of movement in and out of club. Another snipet of gossip is that Leicester are firm favourites to sign Tomaz in Summer. Fulham are also interested.

Lingard, March and Lua Lua change position throughout the last few games when they have started together and this has freed Lingard to be more of a threat. Defences don't know who is coming at them and from where. The result is exciting play and goals. Keep it up! Apologies from LCFC for not beating Reading.
