Elphick can inspire the Cherries to win (We are Brighton interview)

There will not be any more important games than this weekend's for Tommy Elphick. Having just got his place back in the starting 11 he knows that this is a great opportunity for him to regain his place permanently in the side. I know Tommy will be up for this game. Tommy will probably also be playing for his fellow team mate Steve Cook who also has had much of his playing career at Brighton.
Brighton will be a big game for Tommy. 
It will be good to see Tommy step up his performance and show that he is capable of leading the team in the Championship. AFCB need a captain's performance right now. The skipper was inspirational last season in his performances and his communication in leading the Cherries to countless victories, but the match against the Seagulls is one where he can really motivate his team mates towards getting a victory.

Home games are so vital for the Cherries. Brighton have moved up the table in recent weeks while the Cherries have been finding it hard to pick up points, but the mentality and performances have to pick up now. A derby atmosphere, an early kick off and the knowledge that three points would really give the club a lift has to mean a packed Dean Court again. Now we just need our skipper to make the rest of the players know how important a win on Saturday would be for the fans.

In his previous game I thought Tommy was still slightly off the pace when up against quick attackers, but he simply has not had many games this season. I think adrenaline alone will have him playing our of his socks in this match. If he ever wanted to prove a point to those Brighton fans in the away end then this will be the day to do it. Lead on Tommy we are all behind you. UTCIAD!
