Ulloa earns Albion victory

The Argus: Leo Ulloa heads the winning goal (photo Simon Dack) Leo Ulloa heads the winning goal (photo Simon Dack)

Leonardo Ulloa ended his barren streak in front of goal as Albion ran out 1-0 winners over Doncaster at the Amex.

The Argentinean netted for the first time in seven games with 15 minutes remaining to make it a happy homecoming for the Seagulls.

It was their first league win since the previous home match against Birmingham on January 11.

In between, the Seagulls had taken just one point from three difficult away games.

Oscar Garcia handed a full debut to David Rodriguez while Rohan Ince returned and Solly March made his first Championship start amid three changes from the side that lost at Watford.

March particularly impressed in a strong start by Albion when they stretched Doncaster with a number of dangerous crosses into the box.

But for all their pressing in the first half, Albion never once seriously tested visiting keeper Sam Johnstone.

The best opportunity of the first half came on 31 minutes when Stephen Ward crossed low across the face of goal but March, at full stretch, just failed to get on the end of it.

The danger of not making the most of possession almost cost Albion dear on 56 minutes as Billy Sharp was left unmarked from James Coppinger’s cross but he headed wastefully wide.

Moments later Coppinger shot straight into the arms of Tomasz Kuszczak from Chris Brown’s cutback.

The introduction of Kazenga LuaLua coincided with a more threatening spell from Albion, with the substitute firing over and then Ulloa sidefooting into the keeper’s arms from a corner before heading over moments later from an inviting Rodriguez cross.

Rodriguez was the next to try his luck, with Johnstone beating away his shot at the near post.

Albion thought they had made the breakthrough on 73 minutes when Ulloa tapped in LuaLua’s cross but it was ruled out for offside.

It came, though, two minutes later as Ward’s cross from the left was headed home by Ulloa for his first goal since Boxing Day.

Doncaster were reduced to ten men with four minutes to go when Sharp caught Gordon Greer with a poor challenge and then pushed the Albion skipper in the chest.

Victory lifted Albion to eighth in the table, four points off the play-offs with a game in hand ahead of Tuesday's visit of Leeds.

Albion: Kuszczak; Bruno, Greer, Upson, Ward; Ince, Stephens, Orlandi (sub LuaLua 62); March (sub Lopez 80), Ulloa, Rodriguez (sub Obika 89). Subs not used: Dunk, Calderon, Agustien, Brezovan.

Doncaster: Johnstone; Tamas (sub Quinn 46), Meite, Khumalo, Husband; Coppinger, Furman, Keegan, Duffy (sub Cotterill 76); Sharp, Brown. Subs not used: McCullough, de Val, Peterson, Stevens, Maxted.

Not having a go but if we keep a similar attacking team then he will put them in. Well done Ulloa and I cannot name a poor team player tofay.

Listened on the player and sounded as though we where the only team that turned up for most of the game.
Hopefully the goal will give Leo a much needed boost to confidence and he will start knocking in a few starting on Tuesday night.
Rodriguez sounded like a decent player from the commentary, maybe someone who was there could give an opinion on that one?.

A good win - but not impressive.

Ulloa very flat again - maybe finally scoring will bolster him?
Spanish Rodney had a decent outing and showed some promise.

We just don't look a Top 6 side though.

Still far too sterile in the final third.

Good attacking display first half with little to show for a positive line up. Second half promised a goal, which eventually arrived and then we switched off.
Rodders looked good and first team ready. Stephens played it a bit loose on several occasions but will hopefully settle. Great game by March and Ince made two errors for which he made immediate amends. Bruno had a very good game and was my man of the match but was a little guilty of the negativity that infected us once we had the lead.
All in all, three points against a tenacious but ordinary side. OG put up and it was lack of urgency rather than quality that nearly cost us. Onward and ....

CALDERON WARM UP REPORT - FIRST HALF: A slow start for Inigo - unusual for him until he really got going with style, routine and pace. Great backward shuffle steps and some high rotation body flexing. SECOND HALF: A far faster start, great movement in difficult conditions but unusually for Calde a two minute side break half way through. As ever, Lower West North, we thank you for the entertainment and being the ultimate pro as well as recognising the support you are given.

ON THE PITCH: a lot of hope given with the runs of Spanish Rod - once the team read them and his confidence builds still further we'll see goals. Not too sure still what Oscar and Nathan do to the team at half time but it needs changing. Good game for Bruno - hungry and up for it from the off. Odd at 87 minutes to see Leo run out of puff but not be subbed. Plenty of good play today, the final pass letting us down many a time. Plenty of players in the box against what was broadly a poor display by Doncaster. The problem seems to be that there is still a lack of willingness to really go past players once in to the box and that the final pass is "in to the box" or "in to the danger zone" from a good position but rarely right to an actual specific player - more hope than belief. let's sort that and some more goals will flow. 3 points is 3 points, roll on Tuesday - there'll be a great atmosphere and let's end that just one point off the play offs!!

A welcomed three points and so glad that it was Ulloa who scored, can only help him. Like so many of you guys, I didn't see the match so no comments about player performances, but I do wish that we could carry the ball into the box a bit more often. The text commentary from the BBC suggested that we continue with the firing from distance plan. I think I am right in saying that six of our first eight attempts were from distance.
If teams come to the Amex hoping for a draw then the chances of them having plenty of players defending inside the eighteen yard box is high, long range shots will get blocked more often than not. If memory serves, the last penalty we were awarded was the one Barnes put away to end his goal drought, and that was a while ago. To go so long without another penalty being awarded is either down to very composed defending or, we are just not carrying the ball into the box often enough, I'll go with the latter.
If all the lads came thru today's match in good condition I see no reason to change the line up for the next one.

Your a complete knob most of the time,but can't argue with this post.First twenty we looked very good, pace and movement and some decent chances,notably a header from Leo which he should have scored from.
Rodriguez made some great runs that his team mates didn't see, he looks a handy player and I think he will do well for us.

March did very well again but just ran out of steam, needs to acknowledge the crowds applause when he's substituted though. Once again Kaz does the business,beats his defender and gets his cross in,which in terms of quality is improving.

Stephens was ok, average performance,Ince was good,very strong and didn't waste much. Hopefully the goal will help Leo's confidence before a big game with Leeds on Tuesday night.

The key phrase you used :- the final pass letting us down many a time. IMHO it is absolutely essential that we find a midfielder who sees the opportunity for a quick pass - and DELIVERS IT WITH ACCOURACY. It's no exageration to say that, if the final pass had been accurate, we would have had at least 5 goals today. In the first half Solly ran them ragged and, with Orlandi also playing well, we opened them up at will in the first 20 minutes. However, the final ball - be it cross from the wing or through ball into the area - was always poor.
I think all of our midfield and front players need to practice crossing - until they can regularly find their target. Far too many overhit crosses this season - and most of today.

Other than that one big criticism, I think the team played well - bearing in mind they need more playing time together to start gelling and forming an understanding. Very encouraging - and a vital win.

I see that, in his post-match comments, Dickov says he thinks his team were unlucky. I wasn't there but the stats (and Naylor's assessment) would suggest that they were lucky to only lose by one goal!

Three points today sets us up nicely for Dirty Leeds. Bring it on!

The 4 corners of the team were excellent today
Ward & Bruno both had excellent games, as did Rodders & March
Once again Ince was heavily involved & made up for a couple of errors by chasing back and winning the ball back
MOM either March or Bruno.

Should be a good match tuesday, expecting Leeds to come for a win which may just suit us.

Good attacking lineup today and made a strong start but then kept fluffing the final ball. Ince, Bruno and Ward were outstanding, March, Greer, Stephens, Ulloa, Orlandi mediocre. I just wonder if Orlandi is fit, he really struggled today. Thought Rodriguez showed promise for a first outing and looked pretty fit and pacey athough lacked power.

Ground looked a bit sparse today, never 27000 bums on seats that's for sure. Completely confused me too by playing the wrong way round, North Stand first half.

Got the rub of the green and the bulk of the ref's decisions today athough not sure why Ulloa was booked again. Sharp sending off was a bit harsh on him I thought. He had not long missed a sitter and was getting pretty frustrated when dispossessed by Greer.

Doncaster were pretty poor though and we should have been three up by half time.

Lualua to start on Tuesday please in place of March. Can we live with Mccormack, very doubtful. Oh for Buckley's return, he alone can alter the whole complexion of a game if he is on song!!

A bit different from today but we have some very good and skilful players. I still look for the Albion result and follow stats on Livescore.com on the Internet. Good luck Albion, seems they are ALMOST good enough for Premiership, maybe another season away.

CALDERON WARM UP REPORT - FIRST HALF: A slow start for Inigo - unusual for him until he really got going with style, routine and pace.

SECOND HALF: A far faster start, great movement in difficult conditions but unusually for Calde a two minute side break half way through. As ever, Lower West North, we thank you for the entertainment and being the ultimate pro as well as recognising the support you are given. ON THE PITCH: a lot of hope given with the runs of Spanish Rod - once the team read them and his confidence builds still further we'll see goals. Not too sure still what Oscar and Nathan do to the team at half time but it needs changing. Good game for Bruno - hungry and up for it from the off. Odd at 87 minutes to see Leo run out of puff but not be subbed. Plenty of good play today, the final pass letting us down many a time. Plenty of players in the box against what was broadly a poor display by Doncaster. The problem seems to be that there is still a lack of willingness to really go past players once in to the box and that the final pass is "in to the box" or "in to the danger zone" from a good position but rarely right to an actual specific player - more hope than belief. let's sort that and some more goals will flow. 3 points is 3 points, roll on Tuesday - there'll be a great atmosphere and let's end that just one point off the play offs!! UTA
The key phrase you used :- the final pass letting us down many a time. IMHO it is absolutely essential that we find a midfielder who sees the opportunity for a quick pass - and DELIVERS IT WITH ACCOURACY. It's no exageration to say that, if the final pass had been accurate, we would have had at least 5 goals today. In the first half Solly ran them ragged and, with Orlandi also playing well, we opened them up at will in the first 20 minutes. However, the final ball - be it cross from the wing or through ball into the area - was always poor.
I think all of our midfield and front players need to practice crossing - until they can regularly find their target. Far too many overhit crosses this season - and most of today.

Other than that one big criticism, I think the team played well - bearing in mind they need more playing time together to start gelling and forming an understanding. Very encouraging - and a vital win.
I agreein part regarding the final ball and that will come from Orlandi and Stephens the more they play, Augustien has an eye for a good pass but not being used.
What I did see was some good wide play but I would start March and Rodders on their correct side so they can whip accurate crosses in with their good feet. Too tempting to cut in and use their strong foot. Goal came from Ward whipping in a cross with his strong left foot.
No ne mf required just a reshuffle of where the wingers played with a lisence to switch now and again.

Great three points today. Looked very much like is was going to be the same old story i.e. Team comes parks the bus, plays on counter and we have difficulty breaking them down. However we dominated in real terms and if the final pass or attempt on goal was just that little bit better we could have won by four.

The reason we play well away is coz the onus is on the home team to come at us and then we press high with intensity and break fast. That's why when good teams come to attack us at the Amex we normally play well. The reason we do badly against so called poorer sides is because we are set up as a countering side.

I believe as others have suggested that we do need to be a bit more adventurous at home, maybe playing 442 or three at the back really give these teams something to think about up top.

As for the doom and gloom merchants, why bother coming to the Amex, I bet your the ones like the guy a couple of seats from me - who is always last to arrive (drunk), continues to berate every player throughout the game, never once cheers or applauds, tells anyone around him who would listen what he would do if he was manager and then f**ks off with ten minutes to go. He even missed the goal as he was making his 12th visit to the toilet.

We really need to get behind the team, the atmosphere is sometimes very low key, we need to make some noise! Being one of the ten year season ticket holders at Withdean and also one of the few hundred season ticket holders at the Prestfield I've seen some hard times. What I'm trying to say is that we are so bloody lucky to have what we have. Every time the stadium comes into view when I make my usual (normally wet) walk from woodingdean, I feel elated to have a place we can call home again. Lets not make the next generation a bunch of moaners, let's make them proud to support BHA and remind them what's it's taken to get here.

I personally love the championship and will stick with OG, don't forget he's still learning his trade and will no doubt be a better manager for this seasons experiences. A couple of personnel changes next season and a bit of luck with injuries - oh and points deductions for FFP ignorers and we're be fine, we just need to keep the faith.

I think Leeds will come to win on Tuesday and wouldn't be surprise if we win convincingly. Embrace and enjoy guys and sing your heart out for OUR club!

I think it is unwise to anticipate a victory against Leeds - and certainly not a convincing one. Points-wise there is little to choose between them and us and they are capable of anything from dire to inspired.
...and of course they have Mc Cormack.
The best we can do is ensure we cheer them to give their absolute best; if we do that, it should be a good match.

CALDERON WARM UP REPORT - FIRST HALF: A slow start for Inigo - unusual for him until he really got going with style, routine and pace. Great backward shuffle steps and some high rotation body flexing. SECOND HALF: A far faster start, great movement in difficult conditions but unusually for Calde a two minute side break half way through. As ever, Lower West North, we thank you for the entertainment and being the ultimate pro as well as recognising the support you are given. ON THE PITCH: a lot of hope given with the runs of Spanish Rod - once the team read them and his confidence builds still further we'll see goals. Not too sure still what Oscar and Nathan do to the team at half time but it needs changing. Good game for Bruno - hungry and up for it from the off. Odd at 87 minutes to see Leo run out of puff but not be subbed. Plenty of good play today, the final pass letting us down many a time. Plenty of players in the box against what was broadly a poor display by Doncaster. The problem seems to be that there is still a lack of willingness to really go past players once in to the box and that the final pass is "in to the box" or "in to the danger zone" from a good position but rarely right to an actual specific player - more hope than belief. let's sort that and some more goals will flow. 3 points is 3 points, roll on Tuesday - there'll be a great atmosphere and let's end that just one point off the play offs!!

I decided to select the games i thought would be entertaining and opposition that would make this possible,so thankful i chose to listen to the radio,very early on comments were made regarding the amount of possession yet giving little action in the visitors penalty box,this situation regularly happened under Gus and Oscar seems to go along the same track.
Doncaster played as their position in the table suggested they would yet we ended up with just one goal,strange that some consider that this result shows we have the team to figure in the play offs.

Last season during his only season in charge, Oscar took Maccabi Tel Aviv to the Israeli title, their only successful campaign since 2002/2003.
Before that he had been a member of the coaching staff for the Catalan national team under Johan Cruyff
This compares favourably to Gus whose only managerial experience before being appointed by B&HA was as assistant manager at Swindon and Leeds, and as a coach at Spurs.
Oscar knows what he is doing, and more importantly, his ambitions are not running ahead of the financial constraints which have been placed on the club.

Haha! Love the Calde report, IOGG. Personally, I felt he didn't encroach onto the pitch with as much confidence and regularity as usual. An underwhelming performance as far as I'm concerned!

Agree with your report in its entirety. I also think that we just lack the final ball and some more impetus to take players on. You can see glimpses of that from Solly March and I think as he grows into the role (if given the chance to) he will gain more confidence to go round either side of the defender and beat his man more often. He is certainly already causing problems in this fledgeling part of his career.

I would start with the same 11 as Saturday, presuming no-one's fatigued or injured. We need to build a bit of consistency to allow some greater understanding to develop around Spanish Rodders and Dale Stephens.

Three points today sets us up nicely for Dirty Leeds. Bring it on!
Dickov was talking absolute garbage. Donny are probably the worst team we've seen at The Amex this season. We were underwhelming but far better than them and the 1-0 flattered the visitors.
