Gross Adjusting To Brighton Life

Gross Adjusting To Brighton Life

Pascal Gross has said he believes he's quickly adjusting to life in the Premier League following his summer switch from Ingolstadt.

The German striker has appeared in all three of Brighton's opening matches in the Premier League and speaking to the Official Site during the international break he spoke of the differences in the English game compared to life in the Bundesliga and clearly the more physical nature of our game is something he's had to get used to.

'The first few games have been very hard and we were against big teams. We had big opponents, but we played better in the third game against Watford, in a game that we should`ve won. Right now we have one point and we have to take more going forward, but we will keep going and try our best. It`s different to the Bundesliga because it`s more physical and the referees don`t whistle so often. In Germany, it`s easier to get free-kicks and the referees will let more stuff go here. You have to learn fast and get used to the English mentality. That`s what I want to do and I train hard to improve every day.'

With West Bromwich Albion up next at the Amex Stadium when the international break comes to an end, Gross knew it was important we registered our first win as quickly as we could now to get that particular stat of our backs.

'It`s a very important game, especially as we`re at home. We are in good shape and need to get our first win at home, and for our fans too. It`s vital that we have a good total of points from our first six games, and it`s important to get that winning feeling.'

He went on to add.

'Defensively we`ve done a good job, but we have to improve offensively and this is what we`re working on at the moment. We played well in the Watford game before they had a man sent off; we had some very good chances and hit the post twice. We know that we have what it takes to win games in this league.'

West Brom will of course be a different type of puzzle for us with their style of play under Tony Pulis but it's certainly about taking the positives we can from the opening set of matches, especially the Watford clash.
