IN PRAISE OF LEWIS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BRIGHTON cen­tre-back Shane Duffy be­lieves his part­ner­ship with Lewis Dunk will only im­prove as they play more to­gether – and has likened him to Eng­land’s John Stones.

Duffy only joined the Seag­ulls from Black­burn at the end of Au­gust, but is al­ready form­ing a po­tent com­bi­na­tion with team­mate Dunk, 24.

The 24-year-old Repub­lic of Ire­land in­ter­na­tional, who started his ca­reer with Ever­ton be­fore mov­ing to Rovers, said: “The more you play, the more you know each other and build up an un­der­stand­ing.

“He (John Stones) re­minds me a bit of Dunky. I see sim­i­lar­i­ties be­tween them from when I was play­ing with him.”
