Dunk remaining grounded

05 October 2010 04:30
Brighton defender Lewis Dunk has vowed not to get carried away despite manager Gus Poyet tipping him for a career in the top flight. The 18-year-old made his first appearance of the season in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Tranmere due to Adam El-Abd's suspension. An impressive display alongside Tommy Elphick had Poyet purring but Dunk is not getting too far ahead of himself. "I am happy with my performance but I have got to keep my feet on the ground," he told the club's official website. "All of my family make sure I am grounded and they don't let me get ahead of myself. "Now I will keep waiting for my opportunities and hopefully show the manager what I can do, then see what happens from there."
