MANAGERS' VIEWS: HUGHTON AND BRAZIL

6 March 2017

The two managers reflect on Saturday's game.


“We’re going to have to win a high percentage of our games and that starts on Tuesday.”

“Generally when we’ve had a bad result, we’ve managed to bounce back with a good one. If we’re able to do that then we’re back in it again.

“We need to win at Rotherham. It’s getting to that stage of the season where there’s a lot of teams pushing from behind, and I don't see them losing too many games.

Albion take on Rotherham United on Tuesday evening as they look to bounce back with three points, and Hughton stressed the importance of his team finding form for the final run of games.

“Even with Knockaert, and it wasn’t one of his better games, he’s still on the park because he’s the one that can generally produce something.”

“We’ve had that [quality] when games haven’t gone so well for us; we’ve been good in the second half and put pressure on, then we’ve been able to produce something.

He said: “If I’m looking at the areas they got into, particularly in that second half, I thought we got into better positions. That’s when we needed to show that little bit of quality.

The Seagulls had found the back of the net in their previous ten games, and Hughton was disappointed that his team weren’t able to show their clinical nature against the Reds.
CHRIS HUGHTON felt his players got into good positions against Nottingham Forest but failed to show the quality required, as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at the City Ground.


LATEST NEWS FROM SEAGULLS.CO.UK

GARY BRAZIL was delighted for his hard-working players after their impressive victory over the Seagulls, and hopes the club’s supporters recognise their efforts to improve.

Britt Assombalonga, Ben Osborn and Zach Clough scored for Forest as they secured all three points, and Brazil spoke about the commitment shown by his players every day.

He said: “From our point of view it was pleasing on a number of levels. It was pleasing that the hard work put in by the players on the training ground has got its reward for us.

“We said at the beginning that this wasn’t going to be a smooth passage, it would be a rollercoaster and we have lost some games lately but we felt we were going down the right path.

“Hopefully the fans can see the work we are trying to put in and the performance is a credit to the players and the staff who are working hard from Monday to Friday.”

Brazil was happy to send the supporters home with a positive result, but quickly turned his attention to Forest’s next game against Brentford at the City Ground.

“The substitutions were decent and changed the game for us going forward and as an all-round performance I was chuffed to bits for the players, for the staff and I was made up for the fans.

“You could sense they were with us as the game went on and we really need them again on Tuesday night.

“We are going to keep our feet on the ground and prepare for the game on Tuesday against another decent side.”
