In form striker and scorer on FA Cup night, Leo Ulloa, has said that Brighton were desperately unlucky not to progress through to the next round last night as Hull grabbed a late and undeserved equaliser to send the game into a replay.
Brighton started brightly and Ulloa got our noses in front inside the first half hour, and to be honest we had Hull on the ropes as far as I'm concerned. They'll no doubt say they didn't start quick enough, and they didn't get going, but I don't think we gave them chance to for the vast majority of the game.
They had a couple of chances, both teams played well and it was end to end, but we could've, and most probably should've been out of sight by two or three but we just didn't test the keeper enough when chances came our way sadly.
As you'd expect, inside of the last 20 minutes they really stepped it up and looked for more dangerous and they got the reward for that five minutes from time when Sagbo scored the leveller.
To be fair at that point it really was mostly Hull then and defensively we didn't halve have to put in a shift, but it's disappointing we couldn't get that second and kill the game off.
Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Ulloa said that Brighton were desperately unlucky on the night, and whilst there was disappointment in the dressing room, the players didn't let themselves get too down because they could be proud of their performance, they could take the positives of how well we played, and they know for any neutrals watching the game, we have probably won a few admirers.
'We should have won but we are happy as we are still in the competition. It'll be difficult because the replay isn't too kind to us as it's another game, but I'm happy because the team played well and obviously I'm happy to have scored again and I feel much better now.'
Ulloa says that with each passing game he's now starting to feel fitter, sharper and he can really feel the confidence coming back into his play.
'Like I say though, it's crazy that we have to play two games in three days but now we are only focusing on Wigan, our next game, and then we will look forward to the replay. The team is playing well, we were just unlucky in the last five minutes.'
As for his substitution in the 79th minute, he clarifies that although he did take a knock on his calf, the substitution was purely precautionary and he doesn't believe it was be an issue for Saturday.
