Albion delighted by Cup display

Nathan Jones was delighted with Albion’s result – and performance – as they made FA Cup progress.

The Seagulls were particularly dominant in the first half of their 1-0 third-round win at home to Reading.

Assistant head coach Jones said: “We are happy with the performance more than anything.

“I felt we were reasonably dominant in the first half.

“It was as fluent as we have been for a while and as dominant as we have been for a while.

“We created a number of chances, hit the bar, hit the post. It was pleasing, very pleasing.”

Jones confirmed Gordon Greer left the pitch as part of a pre-planned substitution.

The skipper, making his comeback from a calf injury suffered four weeks ago, was due to play an hour.

He eventually went off in the 66th minute.

The fourth round draw takes place at about 2pm tomorrow and Albion will be ball number 26.

Back from the game and to be honest I think Jones has played this down a bit. Andrews had a great game; Augustien was great on the ball and March was excellent and deserved man of the match. Yes we hit the bar with a couple pf great drives; pne from Andrews and not sure if the other was crofts or jfc and the rebounded header hit the bar and should have been finished really. Well pleased today and Reading were nothing special. Reading keeper made a few good saves including efforts from Augustien and March; very optimistic about our rising stars even Dunk came close with his first touch.

Adkins, in the gracious and sporting manner of a latter-day Pearson claims " I wanted a good cup run, but unfortunately a deflected goal has done us today "
Pretty good assessment that Mr Adkins, never mind 18 shots to five ( nothing on target ) , hit the woodwork 3 times, keeper was your MoM............must be something about managers called Nigel - at least the other one had a result today, so we probably won't hear him moaning for a change.

I wouldn't rely on BBC stats. Reading definitely had one shot on target from Lefrondre. That said, we deserved the win although Barnes and Agustien should have had it wrapped up in the first half!!

Be nice to hear what OG thought for a change ! Why do we only hear from NJ ? perhaps getting ready for more cost cutting and being put in charge ! I sincerely hope not.

Indeed. Adkins is a buffoon.
