Brighton Are On The Right Track

Brighton Are On The Right Track

Connor Goldson has spoken of his delight at helping Brighton to FA Cup victory over Coventry City at the weekend as we booked our place in the next round of the competition.

Hosting the League Two side at the Amex Stadium with the knowledge that they had already put out Stoke City, Brighton knew it would take a professional performance to ensure we got the victory and with Goldson being joined on the scoresheet by debutant Jurgen Locadia and the returned Leo Ulloa, it was a good day all round as far as he was concerned.

Speaking to the Official Site as the 25 year old met with the media following the full time whistle, he said of his seventh appearance of the season, and his third goal for the club.

'After the first corner, I felt I had a chance of scoring, because I got away from my marker and he then blocked the header. I just wanted to attack the next one, and after everything I`ve been through, it`s obviously great to be back playing and the goal tops it off.'

Being back involved following his heart surgery is obviously a big thing for him on a personal level.

'There`s been a few games now where I`ve been playing and I said to my girlfriend that I`d do the celebration for her - luckily she was here today to see it. I`m not a person to moan. I`m lucky because I was 24 when I was diagnosed, I had the treatment and I`m fortunate that I was able to play again. There are people that aren`t as fortunate as me. I`m able to play and that`s all I want to do, just keep playing and hopefully impress.'

With Coventry pulling a goal back, Goldson was also full of praise for their efforts across the game.

'We knew it was going to be a tough game. We`ve all been an underdog before and know what it`s like to go to a Premier League club and play a big opponent. To be fair, they put on a good show and should be very proud of themselves. It was a tough game, particularly the second half - we knew that when we got one, we`d need to get two and three. It would have been a nervous last 15 or 20 minutes if it was only 2-0 when they scored.'

He ended by saying.

'For every single player in the team, they`ve got points to prove. Some people aren`t playing every week, some people have just been signed and some people are in and out. We`ve all got points to prove and that`s what has taken us to this stage. We want to win every game of football and show that we can all play in the first team - and we`re doing that.'
