HYYPIA: CASE OF DEJA VU

25 October 2014


Sami Hyypia said it was a case of deja vu as Brighton & Hove Albion were held by Rotherham United at the Amex.

The Seagulls have drawn five of their last six games, and the Seagulls boss admitted his frustration after two draws and a defeat in the past week.

"It's the same story; it was a repeat of the last game. It seems that the same things are happening. This time we might have scored first and had chances to score more - but we did not take them.

"At half-time we talked about needing to start the second half well, as we knew they would start fast and look for the equaliser, but we did not start fast and gave away a sloppy goal.

"Anything we tried to do in the second half we kept making the wrong decisions and gave the ball away.

"We did not have the movement that was required to create further clear-cut chances and, while it was difficult, we had the situations to win the game.

"I am frustrated with the situation. We need a lot of chances to score a goal and yet our opponents are scoring freely.

"That is very frustrating for all of us and I understand that it is very frustrating for the fans. We do keep creating opportunities to score but we don’t put the ball in the back of the net, whereas the opposition have only a few chances but they do score."

Meanwhile Hyypia says his players must learn to be more focussed at the key periods at the start and end of each half.

"It is very important that you keep your concentration levels high at the start and end of each half.

"Those are crucial times in the match and you need to concentrate and be very together as a team to ensure that you do not concede during those times.

"We need to work on getting better; otherwise we will need to find a few players to add to the squad who can make the overall quality of the squad better."
