Seagulls boss blames missed chances
Brighton boss Chris Hughton says failure to take their chances was the reason his side slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Leicester.
Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy struck for the home side, and although Davy Propper pulled a goal back for the Seagulls, it was not enough and the Foxes held on.
Brighton are just three points above the relegation zone and are yet to win in the top flight in 2019. Hughton's side are winless in seven and the only team in England's top-four divisions yet to win this year, and the boss is well aware where the issues are.
"Of course the game is won and lost at both ends and at the moment we're not putting away opportunities and so we have to make sure we're not conceding," he said.
"Those small margins are not going for us at the moment and it's only us that can do something about it.
"I'm delighted with the character because we didn't start well. We made some poor decisions. Sometimes there's such a desperation to do well that you can be a little too hyped up.
"At the beginning we gave the ball away too readily and made some poor decisions but the reaction was really good after that. We gave ourselves a good opportunity to get back on level terms."
