Manager Sami Hyypia has again credited the attitude and the work ethic of the players following last night's draw with Crawley Town.
Speaking to the Official Site after the game where Crawley took the early lead, leaving Brighton to fight back in the second half, the gaffer said.
'The attitude of the players has been very good and it hasn't been a surprise for me. I heard we had a very good group here and the mentality is excellent, so that's very pleasing for me. The players have worked hard, we've tried to introduce a few new things to them and they've picked up on them really well.'
Hyypia says given we are only a few weeks into things and his management, it will still take time before his ideas come 'naturally' to the players as they adjust and take them on board,and he knows that so when things don't work as he'd like he knows it's only a matter of time before they do, because the players are listening and trying and in time, with more training, it will click properly.
'We are in a good way and we still have time until the season starts.'
As for the game more specifically, Hyypia adds that new signing Chris O'Grady missed out because of a slight rib injury he sustained, but he's expecting the striker to play a part in the game against Peterborough.
He also hasn't finished in the transfer market yet, although that's slightly obvious with the departures we've had and the movement of Leo Ulloa.
'We are working hard to get a few more players into the club and the chairman and David Burke are working hard to recruit new faces.'
On the full injury front with O'Grady, Nzuzi Toko, Lewis Dunk, Aaron Hughes and Solly March who limped out last night, all are expected to shake off their slight knocks and niggles sooner rather than later.
