Gus Poyet praised a “decent” Albion performance in the 2-2 draw at Charlton today.

But the Seagulls manager felt his side could have taken all three points.

Albion twice came from behind through Craig Mackail-Smith in the first half and Kazenga LuaLua in the second.

Poyet said: “I think it was a very, very entertaining game.

“Charlton at home have been really strong and difficult to beat and they proved it today.

“But, on another day, if we are a little bit more clinical we should be at least in front on the score sheet which gives you a different type of game.

“We were always chasing. Apparently that is the way at the moment when we are away from home apart from at Huddersfield.

“Overall it was a decent performance.

“I think we showed our way of playing. We believed, we went forward, we never tried to go back and defend.

“We played to win the game.”

Poyet was delighted to see Mackail-Smith score in confident style when clean through on the keeper.

He added: “Great goal from Macca. It looked like we were going to go in at half-time winning because we were looking the most dangerous.

“But then you don’t and after the break it’s a different story.

“It looks like you have got control of the game, then they score.

“We need to correct that but the desire, the ability, the non-stop trying to win the game were there.”
