ADAM WEBSTER says Albion’s wealth of players with previous experience of being in a relegation battle will help them in their current fight.

The Seagulls maintained their four point cushion above the drop zone after West Ham’s narrow 3-2 defeat at Liverpool on Monday night.

Webster was a summer signing but eight of the Graham Potter’s 26-man squad are veterans of back-to-back Premier League survival battles.

Maty Ryan, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, Dale Stephens, Pascal Gross, Solly March, Davy Propper and Glenn Murray have all been there and done it and central defender Webster says their know-how will be vital.

He said: “Definitely there is a lot of experience in the dressing room and everyone is pulling in the same direction.

“We all want the same thing, so the experience that those players have will help us from now until the end of the season. For us it is about taking each game as it comes.”

Albion take on rivals Crystal Palace at the Amex on Saturday.

Webster started the reverse fixture at Palace in November where a dominant Albion were pegged back late on courtesy of a Wilfried Zaha strike.

This time Webster is hoping to go one step better in front of what he expects to be a raucous Amex crowd.

He said: “I would love to play as it is a game we want to win. We will have a good week of training and see what happens.

“It was a great atmosphere when we played them at Selhurst Park and we definitely deserved the three points, but it wasn’t to be.

“Hopefully, this time round we can really put it to bed and have a good performance.”
