It is a psychological game and the team was quite influenced, we can be in the match.
We did not show our actual functionality, Im never likely to take the credit away from Brighton, so we have to give them the credit also, the group suffered a huge impact after three minutes.
From the second half we attempted to find a different way to perform to discover a solution, we started the second half but we did not score.

We will need to find a way to remain together and be all together again and find a great lively
