Garcia - We Switched Off Twice

Head coach Oscar Garcia has admitted that Brighton switched off twice in the two nil loss to Ipswich Town earlier today.

Speaking to the Official Site following the defeat, Garcia was left very disappointed and frustrated because he felt we otherwise dominated the game and would've been well worthy of the three points on offer, but two uncharacteristic slips at the back means we have come away with nothing at all to show for our efforts.

With that said, the gaffer refused to blame the defence too much because having had double the chances of the opposition and over 60% of the possession what was really missing from our game was again a clinical edge in front of goal.

'I keep saying the same thing every time we lose. We were the better team throughout and created the best chances, but we didn't take them. We are frustrated and disappointed because we conceded two poor goals. It's unusual for us to switch off like that, and they punished us both times.'

Garcia adds that it's even more frustrating for him because other than the two goals they scored, he felt they struggled to really test us at any other point in the game, but of course whilst we keep missing chances we will find ourselves in positions like this where a game swings completely because you can't always expect a defence not to make mistakes and that's why you should get yourselves clear in games when you are on top.

With all the talk ahead of the game about making up for the last encounter where he also felt we were unlucky to lose although he admits they were the better side that day, it's kind of ironic that this one has finished with exactly the same score line.

Things don't get easier as we now have to consider travelling with four of the next five matches away from the Amex and the gaffer fully expects to utilise the whole squad, so if we can welcome back in the next week or so Hoskins and CMS to add different options they will no doubt be utilised also.
