Duffy ready to learn his lessons
Centre-back Shane Duffy says he and the rest of the Brighton squad know they need to improve if they are to avoid the drop next season.
The Seagulls narrowly avoided relegation this month, with Cardiff, Fulham and Huddersfield Town all dropping down to the Championship.
Brighton ended the season with a 4-1 defeat to champions Manchester City and that proved to be Chris Hughton's last game in charge after chairman Tony Bloom decided to wield the axe.
With the board now on the lookout for a new manager, Duffy claims his team need to do a lot more to help their next coach.
He told the Brighton & Hove Independent: "Up and down I think. The aim was to stay in the league and that's what we've done but we'll have to improve and be better next season.
"I think we're a lot better than what we showed in the second half of the season but as I said the aim was to stay in the league and we've done that so we go again next season.
"It's been difficult. We've gone through low points and fought for performances and we'll learn from it. Next season if we are going through a little period like this we can take it from this season and try to get out of it."
