Brighton and Hove Albion drew 1-1 with Leicester City on Saturday, even after the Foxes saw James Maddison sent off in the 28th minute.

The Seagulls had one man most of the match and couldn’t take advantage of that, making defender Lewis Dunk frustrated.

“We’re frustrated with ourselves. They deserved the point and we didn’t deserve any more than that,” he told the team’s official website.

“The red card has actually worked in their favor, because until then we were on top.”

“But we got too relaxed and perhaps felt it was over, but it’s never over in this division because every side has quality to punish you,” he explained.

“The turnaround within the game is hard to explain, it’s just one of those games where we took our foot off the pedal – they brought players on who gave them a new energy and it’s very disappointing.”

“The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind, but I just want that to continue,” he commented.

“My focus is firmly on here now – there isn’t an international break until March and we have a busy Christmas period in a tough league.”
