Dale Stephens felt a moment of quality was the difference between the two sides on the night, as Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten 2-0 by Bournemouth last night.
Stephens felt that Albion were the superior side for a large part of the game, but admitted that the side’s lack of firepower is proving costly.
He told seagulls.co.uk, "It's disappointing as for 70 minutes of the game we were probably the better side, but they've got goalscorers in good form and they punished us in the end.
"We haven't got someone who can score 20 goals a season, but that's down to everyone and not just the strikers.
"Our midfielders had a couple of chances to score, so I'm disappointed that we couldn't find the net as we all need to chip in with goals."

The 25-year-old's former Charlton teammate, Yann Kermorgant, set the Cherries on their way to three points with a superb 25-yard free-kick and Stephens has urged his teammates to halt their slide in form as soon as possible.
"We knew about Kermorgant's free-kicks. We tried not to give fouls away in dangerous positions because we knew he scored a few of those this year and it went in the top corner.
"It's concerning at the moment, but it's down to us to turn this around and we can't rely on anyone else.
"We've now got another tough game on Tuesday against Huddersfield. It's a massive game, just like tonight and as Rotherham was as well.
"We're desperate to win our remaining fixtures and we will be looking to do so starting on Tuesday."
