Leo Ulloa thumps home Albion's second goal against Charlton

First published in Sport by

Nathan Jones has revealed how Albion were told not to waste their great work at Leicester.

The Seagulls built on their 4-1 success at the leaders by beating Charlton 3-0 today.

Their two wins in less than a week have taken them into the top six.

Albion’s assistant head coach said: “Those are the exact words we used – let’s make sure we don’t waste the result and the performance we had against a promoted side.

“Let’s not falter here at home.

“It was a great opportunity today, with Reading playing on Monday, to get into top six and we did that.

“I thought we came out of the traps and the players were fantastic. All credit to them.

“It was a fantastic atmosphere, with nearly 29,000 here today and, for a Championship club that is outstanding.”

Good win with some intent and fluidity in abundance in the first half. Sort of a 4-2-4 with interchanging and some...Passion! Second half a bit dull but job done; bad miss by Lingard after superb first half finish. Good run and shot by JFC to round off a dominant but not clinical display.
Bit worried with Capser in between the sticks, Anyone other then PIG makes me nervous. As it turned out, we could have put CMS in goal; Charlton offered very little. Greer back to his best and Lindgard looked to live up to his pedigree. Kaz coming off to bolster the midfield was not the preferred choice and goal difference is something that may yet prove important. Albeit almost ironically, we are not too shabby in that department thanks in large to our defensive 'negativity'. Kaz looked like he was on a mission and had an excellent first half.
On wards and upwards. Feel a little flat with some uncertainty around the squad and management but as i said the other day, a strong finish to the season will silence rumour control. Every game now has the potential to be massive; provided we keep on winning.

So the word is TK not sick but had a row and walked out of training Friday, maybe over contract? We don't know the truth... Lets hope he does just have a bug and back next week... Please. By the way, tony bloom you could make TK feel a whole lot better with a new three year deal... You know it makes sense, tony...

Funny I had a sense that might be the case. Also I think that all is not well still between TK and Bruno. I can imagine there would be a few players who were disappointed that Calde didn't get to keep his place - interesting to see Ulloa race to give Calde a hug when he scored his goal.

Also Rodriguex coming on instead of CMS seemed strange I can only think Rodriguez must be on a deal where gets paid most of his money on appearances as he is on a free.

Let's hope there is no English-Spanish divide in the camp with a disgruntled Pole at the back!!!!

We need firm unity for the final push - strong leadership Tony!

A good win but not a great win, could and should of been 5 or 6 against a very poor side. Is Poyet jnr one for the future? but my burning question is DOES ANYONE REALLY HAVE FAITH IN NATHAN JONES AS A NO2?

After an impressive first half, it all went a bit flat in the second half. Not sure if Stephens was given a different brief at half time, but following a lively first half, he went a bit negative and seemed to be looking to pass backwards. That said, there were a lot of positives today. We must have dried up on posters giving Andrews a hard time. He has become a pivotal figure in the team. Lingard and Ulloa are beginning to look a bit special together. LuaLua justified his starting spot. Greer was very impressive.
I'm surprised that Bruno took Calde's place and that CMS was not given the final sub spot but a comfortable win has been delivered - I will be surprised if we do not reach the playoffs now.

That's all we need... we get in the playoffs for only the second time this season and we get an unfounded conspiracy theory about a player sulking off the team and a split within the camp. B******s to that kind of negativity, we're winning!

UTA!

Some people thrive on negativity
We played well, they have nothing to complain about so they put out a few rumours.

Have to admit i have been castigatingv Andrews all season. Last two games his best for us. Played in holding role as he was in hm cup game v Reading and played well that time too. He has also stopped pointing ..perhaps someone has had a word. Credit where its due. Often yesterday Greer went forward and then he (andrews) covered in defense...well i might add.
Have been saying him and Ince got in one anothers way. Had to be an either or senario.
