Davy Propper scored his first Albion goal at the King Power Stadium.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper was pleased to score his first goal for the club in last night’s game against Leicester City, but the Dutchman admitted a positive result would have been a better reward.

After goals from Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy had given the Foxes a 2-0 lead at the King Power Stadium, Propper fired home to halve the deficit and give the Seagulls hope in the final stages.

Chris Hughton’s side were unable to find a second goal, but Propper, who netted on his 66th appearance for Albion, was pleased to get off the mark, and understands the situation the team find themselves in.

He said, “Of course I’m happy to get rid of the zero. Some of the players were teasing me, so it’s nice to score the goal, but I’d much rather have three points.

“We had some big chances, and they normally would have been goals, but overall we didn’t perform well enough.

“It’s tight, but we know where we are and what kind of team we are. We don’t get nervous, we just do our best. We have some good home games now and it needs to happen.”

Albion created numerous chances against the Foxes, but left the King Power Stadium empty-handed, and Propper weighed up the finer details that are preventing the Seagulls from collecting points.

“We’re conceding too many goals at the moment and we’re having some difficulties with scoring goals.

“It’s not that we’ve been playing very bad. We just need to take some points — if we concede less goals, then it’s easier to maybe score one and win the game.

“Last season we weren’t really in this situation, so this is new. But I’m confident that we can play good and not stay here.”
