FOOTBALL LEAGUE ONE | Saturday 22nd January 2011
Goals: Feeney 62 | Attendance: 9762

New caretaker boss Lee Bradbury saw an impressive performance from his charges and kicked off his first home game with a win and a clean sheet. He told Radio Solent:
“They are a good side and I thought we made them look decidedly average.
“It was a great goal for a fitting occasion – I had goosepimples all over when (Liam Feeney) finished that one.
“We defended really well – two clean sheets in two games so that gives the lads a confidence boost.”

Brighton boss Gus Poyet conceded that his side were playing a patient game, looking for an opening that rarely came and when they did manage to take one it was ruled out for offside. He told BBC Sussex:
“I feel bad because we were a little bit too slow today. We thought sooner or later we’d have chances and we were just waiting. Sometimes you convince the players to be patient and maybe today we missed a bit of acceleration.
“You have to give credit to them because they planned the game and they played one way. We put them under pressure at the end. They did what they had to do and they beat us.
“The results today were quite scary. I don’t know if the opposition don’t want to catch us but they’re doing everything possible not to.”

The whole team played well and any one of them could have been man of the match. Rhoys Wiggins was immense down the left and Jason Pearce was his usual solid self rarely putting a foot wrong. Alongside him Shaun Cooper once again showed his worth, but for us Robinson’s tireless tracking back, breaking up the play and giving of the ball we make him of our man of the match.
