Bridcutt: We're still confident
Liam Bridcutt has assured fans Albion’s confidence has not been shaken by their cup flop.
But the midfielder admits the Seagulls must improve in their Championship opener at Hull City on Saturday.
The Seagulls lost 3-0 at Swindon in the Capital One Cup having been the better side for 50 minutes.
They now face a tough trip north to face Steve Bruce’s new club but Bridcutt said: “We all know that on our day we can cause problems for a lot of teams.
“We have shown that in pre-season and all last season. We have got a good group of lads, we have all got strong characters and we all want to do well.
“Once Saturday comes we will be a completely different team.”
Albion drew 0-0 at Hull last season, just three days after an FA Cup humbling at Liverpool.
Bridcutt added: “Swindon was a slip up for us but it comes down to how we bounce back. We showed good bouncebackability last season.”
Andrew Crofts returns to midfield after playing for Wales against Bosnia Herzegovina last night. Former Seagulls defender Joel Lynch made his international debut as a substitute
