Brighton manager Chris Hughton believes his side at least a point in their 2-0 loss at Bournemouth on Saturday.

David Brooks’ brace was the difference on Saturday as 10-men Brighton succumbed to their third Premier League defeat in a row.

Despite feeling hard done by, Hughton admitted his side failed to utilize their chances in the game.

“I thought we were good value to get something from the game. The difference between the two sides was they put their opportunities away and we didn’t,” Hughton told the club’s website.

“We were good in the first half and they scored against the run of play. It was very difficult towards the end when we were down to ten men, but certainly, before that, I thought we were always in the game.

“It was a wonderful strike by Brooks for the first goal, but I thought we created really good chances of our own.

“If you don’t put your chances away, then you know that a very good Bournemouth side that plays with a lot of pace, with two players up front that run in behind, is going to cause you problems.

“The chances are the pinnacle moments of any game, but on the balance of play, I thought we deserved more.”
