Walsall goalkeeper Rushworth confident of Brighton future

Walsall goalkeeper Carl Rushworth is convinced of a future at parent club Brighton.

The highly-regarded young goalkeeper is enjoying the spotlight on loan at Walsall and helped them to a 1-0 win at arch rivals Port Vale last night.

He said: “I'd be happy to keep playing week in and week out, get a solid 40-odd games in this season.

“Then maybe look to play and challenge the No.1 at England.

“It was a really proud moment for me to be called into the 21s.

“The next step is to keep trying to get called up and push for the No.1 spot and get some game time and make my debut for them.

“And maybe at the end of the season get down to Brighton, have a few training sessions there and just show my face again.

“I think that's something Brighton want as well.

“It's not like I've been pushed out on loan and kind of forgotten “That's what Brighton are massive on."
