'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Poyet keen for midfield to share goal load

Gus Poyet is hoping his midfield can get amongst the goals more regularly now they have broken their duck for the Seagulls.

Albion's forwards and defenders had been the only players to find the net in 2012/13 - that was, up until Dean Hammond and Andrea Orlandi notched their first goals of the season to secure victory over Bristol City on Tuesday night.

And now that the midfield have gotten in on the scoring act, Poyet is keen for them to continue in a similar vein and not put the responsibility solely on the front-men.

Poyet told the Argus, "It's key nowadays, because when you rely only on your strikers, not only do you put pressure on them but as soon as you get one or two of them injured it looks like that's it.

"I was saying before the game Bruno, Gordon Greer and Adam El-Abd had all scored one, Wayne Bridge a couple, so we were looking maybe for Marcos Painter or Lewis Dunk to stand up but it's not up to the defenders. It's up to the attacking midfielders and the strikers.

"Andrea had ten better chances in other games but sometimes when you don't expect the ball to go in it goes in. Maybe now he is going to score a few more.

"We ask Dean to get in there as well with Liam Bridcutt in the side.

"It's important that the midfielders give us an extra bit."
