Slade: We Were Deservedly Beaten

Slade: We Were Deservedly Beaten

Russell Slade said his Brighton side were 'deservedly beaten' tonight in the Carling Cup against Swansea City.

Paulo Sousa's side bounced back from Saturday's defeat at Leicester City in superb style with a comfortable 3-0 win against the Seagulls.

Captain Garry Monk opened the scoring after 17 minutes with a headed goal before Stephen Dobbie scored a second half brace to put the game beyond any doubt.

The Swans dominated the match throughout as the visitors struggled to get a single shot on target. Tommy Elphick had the best chance of the game in the first half to put the scores level but he headed just wide from short range.

Brighton manager Russell Slade told their official site:

'We were deservedly beaten to be honest.

'In the first period I thought that they played some really slick football and gave a polished performance. They deserved to be one-nil up at the very least.

'I switched it round a little bit at half-time. Jake came off because he got a yellow card and we were bordering on losing him and I don't think you need to be in the situation where you are playing with ten men.

'In the second period I thought for the first ten minutes just after half-time we looked a little bit more interested in trying to get a goal, but it wasn't to be and they hit us on the counter. Effectively the second goal put paid to us trying to get back into the game.'


Slade also praised the movement of the Swansea team and he added:

'Swansea are a good Championship side and we have a lot of work to do. Their movement is the one thing that stands out. They get between you and when they do they are very dangerous.

Sousa would have been delighted to see his side get back to winning ways and he'll looking for us to continue that trend on Saturday with a tough League match against Middlesbrough at home.
