Bruno: There Were Positives To Take

By James Hilsum • 09 December 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno was left frustrated following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley, but felt there were plenty of positives to take from the match at Turf Moor.
 
Albion battled hard in the horrendous weather conditions in Lancashire, and the Seagulls skipper felt the side defended well and just missed a clinical edge down the attacking end of the pitch.
 
He said, “It’s disappointing, especially with the way we lost the game. We had really good possession throughout the game, and got into the final third a lot of times.
 
“We couldn’t create as many chances as we wanted, but it was a really good performance away from home.
 
“We knew that we’d have a lot of second balls to deal, but I thought we dealt with it well and didn’t concede chances. We had so much possession and got into the right areas, but we just couldn’t score.”

The Spaniard reclaimed his place back in the side after missing the midweek victory over Crystal Palace, and is happy to be rotated when required.
 
“Every game is different. He’s [the manager] trying to read the games. All the players
have to be ready to play and that’s my case. Whenever the gaffer needs me, I’ll be there.
 
“We’ve got really good depth in the squad and we have 25 very good players that can play. It’s tough because as players because we want to play every week. But we think as a team and that’s the main thing.
 
“We all work hard and wait for whenever the gaffer gives us a chance.”
