Brighton chairman speaks out on Europa League run

Brighton go into their final Europa League group fixture knowing three points would secure top spot in Group B. That would mean they skip the play-off round and return for the last 16 ties, the two legs of which will be played on March 7 and 14.

A draw or defeat against Marseille will mean they face Europa League play-off action on February 15 and 22.

And Brighton chairman Tony Bloom says the club will relish the second part of their European adventure. But he would happily see it delayed a couple of weeks by victory over Marseille:

“It is an unbelievable experience and we are really going to look forward to the second half of the season in Europe.

“It has been a really difficult first half of the season with the extra European games and the injuries we have had.

“I am delighted to be eighth in the table at the moment and to be in the knockout stages of the Europa League. Hopefully we beat Marseille, which would give us that bye”
