Bruno in action against Southampton.

Brighton & Hove Albion captain Bruno expressed his pride after making his 200th appearance in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Southampton.

The Spaniard skippered the side in a keenly-contested stalemate with Albion’s south-coast rivals, and he highlighted the significance of the milestone.

He said, “It was a special day to be honest, and overall it was a good result.

"I remember my first game where we lost at Swindon, which was a bad start, but I am really proud to have played 200 games for this club.

“I have loved it and it’s so important for me to play for this club.”

Bruno reflected on Sunday’s game as a whole, and feels the side can take a lot of confidence from a solid performance against a strong Saints side.

“We’ve generally started games well, but Southampton are a very good side. The table might not say that at the moment, but they are a team with a massive squad and some really good players.

“They were lucky with their goal, and after that we reacted really well. To play like that against a team like Southampton says a lot about us as a team.

“They were quite lucky with their goal because the ball fell straight to their midfielder, but the best thing about the game was the reaction after their goal and that’s what we have to take.”

The full-back was full of praise for Pascal Gross and Glenn Murry in particular, following the striker's goal, but also placed emphasis on the collective strength of the team.

“They did really well and Glenn has been magnificent for us after his injury, both defensively and offensively. He’s scoring goals, which all strikers want and I’m very happy for him.

“It’s not just him though, all of us work hard and that’s one of our main strengths.”
