MATCH QUOTES

Post Match *Saturday, 13 February 2021* โ€‹*Dean Smith* โ€œWe were bang average, I have not seen us make so man enforced errors. We needed our goalkeeper, he had a good game. โ€œWe showed a little resilience and our keeper played well, but I canโ€™t take much more from it. It was a fighting performance.โ€ โ€œNot even bang average, I have never seen us make so many unforced errors in a game, it was sloppy from start to finish but had the resilience to keep the ball out of the net. Brighton were the better team. โ€œIt was disappointing all round and the only thing that comes from it is a clean sheet and the resilience. โ€œEmiliano Martinez made some good saves when needed and was our best player on the pitch tonight. It shows you need a player like that at times, we have not had many performances like this where we have been second best. โ€œWe were equally as bad here last season and losing 1-0 at half-time. Another point to the tally but we are disappointed with our performance. โ€œGraham Potter has coached them very well and if you keep giving a team like that the ball they will hurt you. โ€œIt looks like a hamstring injury (for Matty Cash) as he was turning and this cold weather that can happen.โ€ --- *Tyrone Mings:* *Saturday, 13 February 2021* โ€‹โ€œDisappointed with the performance. We lacked intensity all night. โ€œHappy when not at it, we didnโ€™t lose. Keeper has made some great saves and the defenders made some great blocks. โ€œBrighton will be more disappointed than us. Martinez is brilliant. The confidence he instills in us is brilliant. Very good to play in front of him. --- *Emiliano Martinez* *Saturday, 13 February 2021* โ€‹โ€œI'm not really (pleased with a point), we came here to win and be in the top seven with two games in hand. We were sloppy in the first half and could not create the chances in the second. โ€œThat is my job and the back four, to keep a clean sheet. It is one of those games where we had to put our bodies on the line but we were really off today. โ€œIt was so cold, I thought I had a good game because I made a save early on and I am delighted to keep everyone out today. โ€œI just want to repay the trust of the manager, goalkeeper coach and club. I am glad I settled in really quickly but credit to my team-mates who are doing a really good job. โ€œWe are looking to Europe, that is why I am frustrated today. --- *Dean Smith* *Saturday, 13 February 2021* โ€‹โ€œIโ€™m performance-based and tonightโ€™s performance leaves a lot to be desired. The players know that. Itโ€™s very hard to win games in the Premier League and there will always be mistakes but, what I donโ€™t expect, is making as many as we did tonight. Credit to Brighton, they gave us problems all night.โ€ โ€‹โ€œWeโ€™re not even thinking about (Europe). I thought weโ€™d come out of the traps firing but we didnโ€™t today. Iโ€™ll have a chat with the players on Monday morning. Weโ€™ve just got to be better than we were today.โ€ โ€‹โ€œIโ€™m really pleased with [Martรญnez's] performance, he made at least three top drawer saves with a couple straight at him. We didnโ€™t protect him well enough today. โ€œEmiโ€™s a fantastic goalkeeper and a great acquisition for Aston Villa but heโ€™ll be the first to admit that for the 12 clean sheets this season heโ€™s been protected really well. Today we didnโ€™t and we kept giving them the ball back and he was called into action too much. โ€œHe was very good today. It was a one-man show at times, such was the sloppiness of our play.โ€ ---
