Lewis Dunk

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk felt the side showed good determination to claim a share of the spoils against Southampton, and that they can be satisfied with a solid start to the season.

The 1-1 draw with the Saints means Albion have taken a respectable 12 points from 10 games, and Dunk feels the side are adapting well to life in the Premier League.

He said, "It's not nice to be a goal down, but we showed character - and we know we've got that in the dressing room.

"We were coming into the unknown, so to get 12 points from 10 games is a good return for us.

"We're getting more relaxed in the games and getting to where we were in the Championship, by trying to dominate games and enjoying the ball.”

The centre-back admitted that Albion were frustrated by the nature of Southampton’s goal, but reflected on the positives after extending the side’s unbeaten run to three games.

"We're disappointed with the goal. We didn't react well when the ball came back off the post. But after that we improved a lot and it turned us on - their goal gave us a boost and we played quite well.

"We're three games unbeaten now, so hopefully we can continue that. Swansea are a team around us and that's a game we want to win.

“The next game after that is after the international break, so that’s a long way off.

"We’ve been there before when we’ve lost the game going into it, and it's then a couple weeks until you play again. So hopefully we'll come out with the three points."
