HUGHTON: LEEDS WERE BETTER IN FRONT OF GOAL

Brighton manager Chris Hughton has admitted that Leeds were the better team in front of goal on Saturday when they clashed.


Bighton lost 2-0, losing the chance to move past Newcastle United at the top of the Championship log.

Chris Wood grabbed a brace – making 27 goals this term – to ensure Leeds remain in the race to earn automatic qualification at the end of the season.

Hughton says that Wood’s clinical finishes, out of three shots on target for the whole team, was the difference.

“We knew the game would open up in that second half. I thought we were better second half than in the first but they had three shots on targets and so did we. It’s just they picked their moments,” he said.

He said ahead of the game, the team knew the capability of Wood in the box. He added that they had their chance through Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert but they just did not go in. Read More

Brighton beats Oxford to progress

Brighton showed the gulf in class by beating Oxford 4-2 to progress to the next round of the League Cup.


The score could have been more severe if Brighton strikers were not so unlucky in front of goals.

They started the match well and opened the scoring just after 68 seconds. The goal came from debutant Sam Adekugbe who scored with a powerful shot. Brighton had more chances to extend their lead, but they will fail to do so either because of poor decision making or because the opposing goalkeeper made a save.

Indeed, if it was not for the Oxford goalkeeper, Brighton could have already won the match in the first half. Unfortunately for them, they could not extend the lead, and they allowed Oxford to come back into the game. They will manage to equalize in the 29th minute through Wes Thomas and to get back into the game.

Brighton will gain take control of the game and get a host of occasions through Manu, but he will be denied at each time by the goalkeeper. Brighton will manage to take the lead thanks again to a goal from LuaLua.

A few minutes later it will be the turn of Manu to extend the lead after good work from Danny Holla. This will free Brighton and they will begin to play with more confidence and will add a fourth goal through Baldock. Read More
