Hughton Disappointed Following Huddersfield

Hughton Disappointed Following Huddersfield

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has spoken of his frustration at the goals conceded to Huddersfield Town at the weekend.

Heading to the John Smith's Stadium for the game, the hosts took a two nil victory with a brace from Steven Mounie and Hughton knew it had been a frustrating afternoon all round for the side.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media following the game, a downbeat gaffer explained.

'We're disappointed with the goals that we've given away today and we certainly weren't at our best. We improved in the second half, but by that point we were catching up a bit - we capitalised on some space that appeared but when you come away from home in this division and find yourself two goals down, it's always difficult to come back. The biggest disappointment for me is the first goal because it's the same as the first against Liverpool last weekend - it's something we've spoken about, so that's probably the biggest disappointment from my point of view.'

Despite some improvement in the play, we failed to find a consolation strike in the second period but Hughton again focused in on the way we conceded the goals as opposed to failing to score goals.

'We need to start finding the back of the net again ,but at the moment the bigger concern for me at the moment is the way we've conceded the goals today. Goals are tough to get in this division and sometimes it's tight but if we concede in the manner in which we did today then we will always find it difficult.'

With Ezequiel Schelotto and Markus Suttner coming into the side for the game in place of Gaeten Bong and Anthony Knockaert, Hughton explained his thinking behind that.

'We knew how they play and we wanted to be a bit more secure and also keep the quality in our side. Ezequiel is a runner who can get up and down and Izzy was good against Liverpool. But the team as a whole need to improve. The challenge now is to improve on Wednesday evening, and everyone's pushing for results. I never thought for one moment that we wouldn't have tough periods and we must react now.'
