Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has urged the players to roll their sleeves up as they face a relegation battle in their hands. The Seagulls have been in a woeful run of form during the backend of the season and the recent home defeat at the hands of Cardiff City has put them within two points off the relegation zone.
Speaking after the Bluebirds’ defeat, Hughton indicated that the team must find a way of turning around the lean run of form, given they have quality within their ranks to do so, he said: “We’ve always had a battle on our hands, we’re a young team in this division and there’s going to be highs and lows. At this moment it’s a low, particularly because of the last two defeats at home, but we have no choice but to get on with it, roll our sleeves up and show the quality that we’ve got. We need to get back to what we do best and look to get results in this series of games. “It’s still very much in our own hands and that’s the way we have to look at it. It’s been a huge disappointment for us, particularly at home, but we have to find a way around this.”
