Brighton manager Gus Poyet relieved to escape Ashton Gate with a point after 0-0 draw with Bristol City
Brighton manager Gus Poyet admitted he was relieved to get out of Ashton Gate with a point after seeing his promotion-chasing team given all the trouble they could handle by a rejuvenated Bristol City.

“We did not play how we can play and I am just pleased to come away with a draw. It is a point when we could have ended up with none.”
Brighton scarcely mustered a single shot on goal and Poyet explained: “It was down to our poor performance and Bristol City stopping us from doing what we wanted. It was a bit of both.
“If you look at their bench, it is really strong and, if they continue to play like that, they can get out of trouble, for sure.”
