NEAL MAUPAY believes rivals are fearful of coming to the Amex now.

But the striker wants to see Albion become more of a scary proposition on the road – starting this weekend at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

The Seagulls made it a hat-trick of home wins after they followed up victories against Tottenham and Everton respectively with a 2-0 triumph over Norwich on Saturday.

Marksman Maupay believes the recent run of wins at Falmer will put opponents on their guard.

Maupay said: “Playing at home is easier for us. We have really good fans who are behind us from the start to the end, so it is definitely easier.

“I think because of the way we are playing at the moment teams are a bit afraid when they come here to the Amex.

“We have three wins in a row here but if you want to be a really good team in this league we need to be able to win away from home.”

Albion were left to rue dropped points on their own patch earlier in the season as they felt their performances deserved more reward.

But Albion midfielder Davy Propper believes that has changed in recent games and echoed Maupay’s thoughts.

Dutchman Propper said: “In the beginning we played well and didn’t get the results, but now we have started to get the results as well.

“That gives us even more confidence and I think that scares opponents a little as well.”
