Brighton & Hove Albion keeper Tomasz Kuszczak believes that opponents are benefitting more from the Seagulls' failings of late rather than their own quality. 

Albion have lost their last three games, but the Pole believes the side are still capable of maintaining a play-off push if they get back on the goal trail.

He told seagulls.co.uk, “We have so many chances to score but somehow in the last three games we suffered the perfect punishment for not scoring from the chances we created. 

“Sheffield [Wednesday] in the last minute, then in the last game [v Middlesbrough] we didn’t score, they went 1-0 up, we had a penalty that we missed but it happens; players miss, this is normal, you understand this. 

“You can't blame Leo [Ulloa] or someone for not scoring. It’s about bonding the whole team, like a unit, to be more focused and just put the ball in the net because this changes the game. 

“We have to change something, definitely, because it is the right time now, and if we lose another couple of points in the next two games then we're going to be out.”
Kuszczak also refused to blame individuals for errors that cost Albion points and is adamant the players are doing their utmost to turn the recent form around.

“Everyone makes mistakes, this is normal, this is football, we’re all just human. If you play over 30 games like some of the players have done this season you might make one or two mistakes, but this doesn't mean you are going to lose the game.

“You might make one mistake individually and concede a goal but go on to score two or three, and we have other opportunities to do this; we have to work on this factor. We have to focus more and be more clinical and change this bad run.

“But, you can see the lads care about the results; we feel frustrated sometimes, especially when things happen in the last minutes of the game.”
