Soccer-Dunk hopeful Brighton can extend unbeaten run

Oct 31 (Reuters) - Defender Lewis Dunk wants Brighton and Hove Albion to beat Swansea City in Saturday’s Premier League contest and head into the international break with a confidence boost.

Brighton drew with Everton earlier this month before beating West Ham United 3-0 and registering a 1-1 draw with Southampton last weekend to climb to 12th place in the league standings.

“We’re three games unbeaten now, so hopefully we can continue that,” Dunk told the club’s website. (www.brightonandhovealbion.com) “Swansea are a team around us and that’s a game we want to win.

“The next game after that is after the international break, so that’s a long way off.

“We’ve been there before when we’ve lost the game going into it, and it’s then a couple weeks until you play again. So hopefully we’ll come out with the three points.”

Swansea dropped to 17th in the standings, one spot above the relegation zone due to goal difference, following a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal last weekend. (Reporting by Aditi Prakash in Bengaluru)
