Jones happy - but admits slow start cost Albion

The Argus: Craig Mackail-Smith goes on a run as Albion chase an equaliser Craig Mackail-Smith goes on a run as Albion chase an equaliser

Nathan Jones admitted a slow start cost Albion today.

But the Seagulls’ assistant head coach was happy with a point and a return to the top six.

Bruno struck on 83 minutes to cancel out Oliver Norwood’s sixth-minute free-kick and secure a 1-1 draw at Huddersfield.

Meanwhile Reading and Bournemouth both lost.

Jones said: “First of all we are delighted with a point in the end because of other results which have pushed us back into sixth place, which we are pleased about.

“It was a difficult game. We knew it would be a difficullt game with them fighting for their lives.

“They have got good players, very good players. They are in a bit of a false position if I’m honest, “We didn’t start the game very well and that’s the thing that killed us really.

“For the first five, six, seven minutes we didn’t really come out of the blocks.

Can anyone who was actually there let me know which system we were playing and did it change, as we had to spend all but the first six minutes chasing the game?

Okay its now simple.

Providing Ipswich do not win at watford on sat, six points at home to teams trying to avoid relegation (not easy) will put pressure on the other teams.

Forest away could be quite a trip,UTA

Yer Ipswich have Watford away then Bornemouth, so it should be in our hands. But we have proved before we can't cope with that. Kicks up the arse needed.

Ipswich have Burnley away too right? On last day? Tough run in for sure. We have easiest run in and if we fail then it will prove we were not quite good enough. Even if we do reach the play offs I can't see us beating Derby and/or qpr, and /or Wigan. Wigan are my faves to go up via Play offs. You never know though!

Does it annoy anyone else how often Nathan Jones says "if I'm honest"? We wouldn't expect anything less Nathan!!

Same old yet again.Solly & Kaz played out of position,and Ulloa on his own yet again.It was very clear in the first 30 mins Dunk upset the defence and TK again.Any true Albion fan would admit Dunk was lucky to even stay pitch after the first Yellow.We need Upson back asap,and Lewis Dunk out this club next season.If he had really had such great games against Hull they would have put a bid in for him after.On a good note Brono,Ward and TK outstanding today.Plus great to see Dick Knight.

Top post my friend.Its very clear you understand the game.I also think we may make the top 6 but find it very hard against the Derbys,QPR,and Wigan.

What positives can we take from today?
We got an away point.
We are in the top six.
Reading lost. (Any other result in that game we would still be 7th.)
Bournemouth and Blackburn lost ground.
No injuries.
No sendings off.
It is impossible to make accurate predictions in this division, but I don't believe any of the sides involved can win all their games. If we are still 6th at this time tomorrow, I think seven points will be enough.

I sometimes wonder why we even bother to interview NJ ?
“It was a difficult game. We knew it would be a difficullt game with them fighting for their lives.
“They have got good players, very good players. They are in a bit of a false position if I’m honest"

If you were honest NJ, you'd say that with their leading scorer out and both their centre backs suspended, it was a game we expected to win.
They are not in a false position, they are where they are because they are not very good.
We'd all rather hear you speak the truth instead of stating things that are so obviously false and serve only to cover up your own inadequacies.

"Its very clear you understand the game" translates as "you think the same as me" does it not? Hardly a ringing endorsement.

Outstanding post.Something people like Ex-pat and his many post names could never understand.They had their leading scorer out just like Hull did for both games,and both CB suspended.But yet again Dunk looked pure lower league rubbish.How can NJ say they are in a false position at this stage of the season lol haha.

(a) You seem obsessed with Dunk
(b) You seem obsessed with me
(c) You seem obsessed with Hull

I'm no psychologist but I reckon it's time you became less obsessive.

On a different tack considering how long we were losing the game I think we've got to be pleased with a point, especially considering how our rivals did.
