Brighton and Hove Albion – 2
Nottingham Forest – 1
I’ve decided not to dwell on this at all.
First half – lots of possession, lots of chances – sitters missed, still level at half time. Tyson sent off for – as yet – unknown off-the-ball reasons, Lester scores a great goal, Grant is subbed for Junior, Curtis wrestles a Brighton player to the ground, wall with gaps in it, freekick scored, Forest kick off and hoof it to Brighton, Brighton attack and score again within a minute.
To say I’m pissed off is an understatement in the extreme. What a tremendous let down this group of players are proving to be. Surprising that Smoulderwood didn’t opt to make use of Clingan and Commons – particularly Clingan, and all in all, today has left me absolutely flabbergasted after a rollercoaster of a game.
A good first half, a sending off leaving us contemplating a draw being a good result, elation at Jack’s excellent intervention to be followed by absolute horrified disbelief at what was to follow. Fair play to Brighton – who, I might add, hadn’t won at home since early December – they took their chances and grabbed the result – we certainly have nobody to blame but ourselves.
I feel like a bit of a stuck record now – but we need to sort this in our next game – at home against Blackpool. I would have accepted 6 points from the Brighton, Blackpool and Chesterfield games – so now the gauntlett is down for the players to deliver them – do I think they will? Do I bollocks.
Disgusted with the lot of them right now.
