Poyet: Buckley is staying put

Gus Poyet reflects on another 2 points dropped on Friday night, whilst praising Albion wide-man Will Buckley.

The Seagulls were the dominant side despite being pegged back twice during an eventful 2-2 draw with Leeds, and although Poyet is disappointed with the result, he's confident their positive play will reap the reward in the coming weeks.

He told seagulls.co.uk, "I really enjoyed watching my team and we are back to playing our normal game, but we were unlucky not to win. Once more we are disappointed not to take all three points.

"The only difference is that we scored two goals this time but we conceded two goals in the league for the first time this season.

"We were in control; we had more possession, more chances, more crosses. That is what I asked from the players and you hope that football is fair, but it went against us again tonight."

The Uruguayan also highlighted the efforts of right-wing speedster Will Buckley, and has reassured fans that he will not be for sale come the January transfer window.

"He was outstanding. I was even surprised with another of his sprints because I knew he was quick, but I didn't know he was that quick.

"He is not for sale and it does not matter how many millions people put on the table in January; he is going no-where."
