HUGHTON REFLECTS ON A FAIR POINT

3 November 2015




Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton reflected on tonight's 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday and felt that a point was a fair result to both teams.

Hughton said, "Neither team deserved to win and neither deserved to lose. To come here and get a draw was a good result.

"We looked secure at the back but we are disappointed that we didn't show what we can do when we break on the counter, or in the final third.

"We knew what it would take to win the game and we came to win, because we sensed it was a good opportunity, but we just needed to show that little bit more intensity more often in that final third to break them down.

"They're a good side, who are in good form and it was going to take something special to break the deadlock, but I think overall probably both sides will be happy with the draw."

Hughton admitted he had a tough decision to make ahead of selecting his team, as he switched back to a 4-4-2 formation with Inigo Calderon coming in for his first Championship start this season.

"We wanted to play two upfront. When you play two up top, it's sometimes very difficult to play two out and out wingers away from home in Jamie [Murphy] and Solly [March].

"I felt I needed a more defensive player on one of the flanks. Considering he hasn’t played a lot of football, he did ever so well.

"These are always tough decisions, but what we have got at the moment is a competitive squad. I hope that remains the case."
