Hughton - We need to improve
Brighton's position is in danger of becoming perilous following their recent run of poor results, according to Chris Hughton.
The Seagulls looked as safe as houses at the turn of the year but have picked up just one point from their previous five matches and now find themselves hovering three points above the relegation zone.
Boss Hughton takes his side to managerless Leicester on Tuesday night desperate to reignite their season and avoid a battle to beat the drop.
"We've gone from what some perceived as a good position in the league to being on the back of three disappointing results," said Hughton at his pre-match press conference.
"Those are the facts and we need to start picking up points. We're still in the FA Cup and that's a plus for the club and the side. We have to show character now to come through this period.
"The emphasis doesn't change, though. We know what we need to do to start getting points. This group is positive and we know we've been doing plenty of things well."
