MATY RYAN believes Albion have more than held their own against ‘difficult’ opposition in their last three games.

Albion are unbeaten in their last three matches against sides in the top half of the table.

They won at Arsenal, drew with Amex visitors Wolves and on Monday night took a point against arch rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Seagulls have banked five points from a possible nine and were disappointed not to pick up more – especially against Palace.

Goalkeeper Ryan reckons Albion’s style of play this season is helping them to have more control in games, especially on the road.

He said: “I think we have played some difficult opposition, in difficult places and we are doing more than holding our own.

“We are going there and dictating a large majority of the game.

“The feedback from the coaching staff and fans has been quite positive and we are all embracing the changes that have come in this year.

“We are trying to improve by setting our standards high.

“We are getting to a level now where the standards are there to get results against this type of opposition, so it is pleasing to see and we need to keep building.”

But Australia’s No.1 warned: “There is still room for improvement as we are not winning every game.

“We want to be winning as many games as possible and until that happens there is plenty of work to do.

“Even when we get to that stage, there is going to be work to do in order to uphold and maintain that, but we are all enjoying it and we have got to keep that going.”
