Brighton, with this something of a familiar scenario, drew with Preston on Saturday with this the fourth successive draw as the Albion bid to win at Preston in any league goes on but Chris Hughton did, all in all, think the points being shared was about right.

Hughton felt both sides had chances in this nil-nil draw, as we know we twice had the ball in the net but Jamie Murphy and Tomer Hemed were both offside, with Calum Woods hitting the bar for Preston.

In his post-match conference, with the BBC covering his thoughts, he said.

‘We had a couple of good chances and so did they. On the balance of play I thought we threatened but we didn’t retain possession well enough in the areas we needed to. They worked very hard and restricted the quality balls we were able to put in. Away from home if you can’t play as well as you’d like you’ve got to make sure not to lose the game.’

Defensively once again we ‘were solid’ with this solid base helping us retain a great record of losing only two of our 18-matches away from the Amex Stadium with 11 of these drawn.

The boss finished by admitting his disappointment the possession we had wasn’t retained ‘well enough’ which if it had it might have been a different story as it made it more difficult.

‘The only disappointment is that we didn’t keep possession well enough and if you don’t do that then you make life harder for yourself.’
