Brighton boss Hyypia hits out at ‘Wild West’ defending after defeat at Brentford

first_imgBrighton boss Sami Hyypia bemoaned his side’s ‘Wild West’ attitude to defending as they crashed 3-2 at Brentford.Albion were always playing catch up after conceding first-half goals by Moses Odubajo and Andre Gray.Although Seagulls skipper Gordon Greer pulled a goal back before half-time, Jonathan Douglas made it 3-1 early in the second period and Danny Holla’s cracking effort from 20 yards proved only a consolation.Hyypia said: “In the first half we were a little bit open in our defending, and made it too easy for Brentford to attack and to score goals.“We need to be a little bit more patient in defending and save our legs when we’re trying to defend compactly.“You can’t go to the game with the kind of attitude of playing like the Wild West and have confidence you can always score one more than the opposition.“We need to talk about that, work on it on the training field and hopefully correct it ready for Tuesday [against Ipswich].”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
