Poyet pleased as Seagulls take flight


Brighton boss Gus Poyet paid tribute to his side's concentration as they extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 2-0 win over Bristol City.

The Seagulls were denied all three points at Bolton on Saturday after David Ngog's late equaliser and Poyet was pleased to see his side close the game out for maximum points this time, courtesy of goals from Dean Hammond and Andrea Orlandi.

"We got a clean sheet, scored a couple of goals, so I've no complaints," he said. "It was a good, professional display. We needed to keep patient and make it difficult for the opposition."

Poyet also praised Stephen Dobbie and Will Hoskins, who were handed surprise starts in place of regular strikers Craig Mackail-Smith and Ashley Barnes.

"Dobbie and Hoskins were desperate to play and this was an opportunity for them to come into the side and impress."

He added: "I think they both had good games without being spectacular."
