“Brighton were the better team. We were hugely disappointing all over the park. You have to give the team credit for playing well. They created chances, pressed us – did everything we wanted to do.

"We didn’t really do anything of note. With a long record of going unbeaten, we’ve lost two. When you don’t show up you don’t get results. We prepare for every game different. It’s just not clicking. We need to find a way to get results, especially at home” Robertson concluded.
