Mark Robins says it’s time for focus, belief and calm heads as Huddersfield Town chase the win which would go a long way towards ensuring Championship football next season.
The boss accepts play-off chasing Brighton will provide a tough Good Friday test (3.00).
But he believes his 17th-placed side, who are six points above the drop zone, have what it takes to down the Seagulls – even without suspended defenders Peter Clarke and Joel Lynch.
Neither featured when Town claimed a goalless draw at Brighton in December.
Four months on, the manager is targeting another clean sheet, and a first win in 10.
“It’s often said that in the Championship, any side can beat any other on their day,” said Robins.
“We have to make sure this is our day.
“It’s been far too long since our last win (5-0 at home to Barnsley on March 1).
“We’re in a scrap, and we need to pick up points.
“To do that the players selected need to step up to the mark.
“We have good players. Some are young and relatively inexperienced, but they are capable.
“This is a great chance for them to go out and show it.
“Matches like this one are the reason we want to play in the Championship, and stay in the Championship. We need focus, belief and calm heads, and we need to deliver.”
