Brighton midfielder Ryan Longman is enjoying his loan with Hull City.
The midfielder has been used in multiple positions by Grant McCann before he was sacked.
Most recently Longman has been used as a wing-back and has enjoyed a fine spell of form in the role, providing two assists and scoring one goal in his last two appearances.
He told BHAFC: “I have never played at wing-back before, so that’s been a learning curve.
“As a winger you’re used to having cover behind you, but at wing-back you have to look after two players at times which can be a challenge.
“But I am enjoying it, you tend to get a little more space out on the wing.
“Brighton play with wing-backs quite often, so it’s good to show that I can play in different positions – I don’t want to be a one-trick pony.
“I can’t slide tackle, but I can hold off a player, that’s pretty much it.
“I came up against a tricky winger for Bournemouth at the weekend and I now have a lot more respect for defenders who keep that sort of player quiet.
“You get ideas about improving your own game going forward though.
“I’ve now got a couple of ideas on how to get past a good full-back.
“That’s all a product of getting more games, you pick up little things like that.”
