The Seagulls were denied three points against Burnley on Saturday by Jeff Hendrick’s equaliser in the closing stages as the game with the Clarets ended 1-1, and the keeper emphasised that there have been plenty of positives to take from the season so far.
He said, “It’s frustrating, but over the course of the season these things happen, and you have to keep going.
“A win and a clean sheet will always be pretty close to the perfect performance and we did a lot of things right, but we didn’t get the result.
“We have to keep learning and growing, I think we’ve demonstrated enough and showed high standards in our matches so far to suggest that there’s a bright future for this club.
“There’s no panic, in the games I feel we’ve been pretty solid defensively overall. There have been certain moments in matches that have heavily influenced the results and perhaps we aren’t getting those breaks at the moment.”

Both Ryan and Albion teammate Aaron Mooy returned to league action following international exploits with Australia last week - the pair were part of the side that beat Kuwait 3-0 away from home, with Mooy scoring the third goal for the Socceroos.
“The international break was another good one, and we kicked off our qualifying campaigns for both the Asia Cup and the World Cup,” he continued.
“We had a good result away from home with a lot of different factors, but we overcame those and did well.
“There’s a lot to come from Aaron, he’s shown his ability already in this league at Huddersfield and throughout his career as a whole.
“We’re blessed to have that depth in the squad, he works hard each day and makes the most of the minutes he’s getting, we’ve got a competitive group and all want to give the head coach decisions to make.”
