Shane Duffy in action against Leicester City.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Shane Duffy admitted his disappointment after Leicester City took advantage of Glenn Murray’s saved penalty and fired late goals to seal a 2-0 win at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls produced a promising display on the south coast but were undone by goals from Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy in the closing stages, and Duffy felt his team-mates were close to securing a positive result.

He said, "We're very disappointed. We had a chance to go ahead in the game and I thought we played quite well, but the ending killed us. We felt like we were going to win the game.

“Glenn's been great for us all season and I'm sure he'll be back [after the penalty miss].

"To be fair, they defended very well and are a strong team. We thought we had enough to beat them but we're disappointed with the way we conceded the goals.

"We knew we'd have highs and lows, and this is a low. But we've been here before and always bounce back.”

Chris Hughton’s team return to the Amex next weekend for the visit of Huddersfield Town, and Duffy highlighted the fixture against the Terriers as a big chance to move closer to Premier League safety.

“It's a huge game next week against Huddersfield. If we can get this place rocking again, like it was today, then we'll try to get the three points.

"[Survival is] never done until it's done. Everyone around us is picking up points. Today was a chance to get some, but they're a good team who are tough to beat and we’ll have to move on.”
