'If It's Football, It's Vital'

History In The Making For Oscar

I wasn't aware of this, but apparently Brighton can make history and become the first team to overturn a first leg deficit in Championship Play Offs and book their place at Wembley when we take on Derby County in the second leg.

It's quite hard to believe, but apparently no side has recovered from a first leg loss to progress into the play off finals, and Garcia told the Official Site that it's simply an extra motivation for the squad going into the game.

'We showed that we can come back from behind as we did at Forest and the most important thing is to believe we can do it and make history. It's another motivation for us. We have shown that we can beat teams away from home, we never give up and the tie is very much alive.'

Oscar goes on to say again that our performance against Derby was in fact very pleasing, we just didn't get the rub of the green on the day unfortunately, so with the tie still alive, it's still all to play for and effectively being at half time, this is nothing we haven't overcome before.

'We need to be more clinical in front of goal and we will go there to have a go. Obviously it's much more difficult but we know that we have to go there to win it. We just need to be focused on winning the game and that's it.'

Sounds so simple, but football often is despite the best efforts to complicate things. We have quality in the squad, we have goal scorers, and we know we can defend.

Put that together and get the victory.

For Oscar, knowing we can write ourselves into history is another motivation though and it's just something else for us to aim for, as he admits in his short spell as a manager so far, taking Brighton to Wembley and then the Premier League would easily be his greatest achievement so far, and that doesn't belittle everything else he has done so far, but this is just a different level.
