Bruno and Steve Sidwell have spoken of Brighton digging out a result against Nottingham Forest at the beginning of the week.

Taking the two one victory on Monday evening with goals coming from Lewis Dunk and a late Steve Sidwell strike, Bruno told the Official Site that it was a hard fought win as manager Chris Hughton had previously said, but he was delighted to see Brighton battle and dig in for another extremely valuable three points as we keep automatic promotion hopes alive.

‘I am happy of course because we got the three points, but we`re a bit disappointed because our performance was not the best. We know that we cannot always play well. Their goal killed us and I don`t know why. We were a bit all over the place because we were trying to score the second goal, but we kept our faith and we scored in the last minute. We always believed that we could win the game. Against Burnley, we lost two points and today we got them.’


‘For us, the first half was quite good and maybe the second half wasn`t the best, but we worked hard and that`s the most important thing.’

Bruno went on to say that with aims ourselves though it was important nobody overly focused on the results of Burnley or Middlesbrough ahead of us, we just had to take care of our own remaining matches and make sure we are in a position to capitalise if one of them slip up.

‘We are focused on our own performance and we need to take it game by game and try to get the three points each time. That`s the most important thing, because we need to keep picking up the three points to keep fighting.’

As for Sidwell, with him getting the late goal that secured victory, the Argus have him quoted following the game as saying.

‘It`s our turn now. We`ve got to do it. It doesn`t matter what anyone says, pressure does play its part. You forget about it when you are on the pitch but before the game they will be in there, psyching each other up. We need to win, to keep in with the pack.’

With Fulham up next and Ross McCormack and his 21 goal haul, Sidwell said we couldn’t just focus on him, as Moussa Dembele was also a threat as were other players.

‘It`s not just him. The front two, him and Moussa Dembele, have been very good. That`s been the story of their season, they`ve scored goals at will but leaked them as well. We`ve got to be on our toes up and down the pitch. They are on a good run of form, got dragged into the relegation battle but have come out with two or three wins. That`s vital for them. It won`t be a pushover at all. Being at home gives us a slight advantage but they are going to want to finish their season on a high as well.’
