A refreshed Liam Bridcutt is eager to get back into action having completed his two-game ban.
*
The Albion midfielder served his suspension for amassing ten yellow cards, but now feels reinvigorated for the run-in.
*
He told seagulls.co.uk, “There was a run of games where I was walking that tight-rope and always thinking about who we have got next, trying not to get that yellow card.
*
“But the ban probably came at the best time as I was carrying a few knocks and now it’s done I can get back into the swing of things. I am looking forward to getting back out there.*
*
“I had a couple of weeks to recover from all the games but I was obviously gutted I wasn’t involved because it is hard to sit in the stands and watch. You go through everything the team goes through so it’s frustrating, but I feel a lot better now and I’m ready to go again.”
*
The 23-year-old returns to the squad for tonight’s trip to Bristol City and with Albion sitting in the final play-off* place, Bridcutt believes the team can draw on last season’s experiences to secure a top-six finish.
*
“We have learnt from last season when we were in a similar position and things didn’t really go for us.
*
“We have more experience now and some key players in the squad; as long as we keep our heads and don’t get carried away with things we can do a lot better than we did last season.
*
“We were gutted that we let an opportunity to progress in our careers and lives slip through our fingers last year.
*
“But this season we have that little bit more hunger and fight about us, plus we are wiser heading into these next few games.”Palace tickets are available to supporters with a purchase history within the previous three seasons.
