Ulloa: We left it late - and that makes it even better

The Argus: Leo Ulloa heads the winner Leo Ulloa heads the winner

Leo Ulloa admits Albion left it very late to make the play-offs - and that made it all the more special.

The Seagulls’ top scorer struck in added time to grab the win his side needed to pip Reading to sixth spot.

Albion were out of the play-off places for the vast majority of a dramatic afternoon.

But they made their move when it mattered most.

Ulloa said: “I’m happy for the team, all the people here.

“We have been working all year to have a chance to get into the play-offs and we have managed it.

“I don’t know if we deserve a play-off place more or less than Reading do.

“But we did things well, we worked hard. I’m happy.

“The important thing is we got there.

“I didn’t really worry about Reading because I always felt we would have to win the match and then see what happened.

“Yes, we won right at the end. But I think you enjoy that more because it is so nerve-racking.”

Well done to all involved and the fabulous away support as ever
Job done, the rest is fun
Two play offs in two seasons is not shabby and whatever happens from now on in is a bonus
By the way CMS to Ulloa in injury time, who wrote this script?

You have to wonder, now the play-offs have been achieved at the death - is this to be our spectacular season after all? I've got a funny feeling. Call it fate, whatever, but I feel the script has been written and there's a happy ending in store...

Got to admit to being totally wrong in predicting today's outcome, but am now looking forward to the final at Wembley. Well done all concerned.

Been like that all season. And last season. Don't know why. What have we done to offend, I wonder? Always last match on The League Show and very little comment from the pundits. Teams like Leeds and Milwall get more coverage. Weird.

Unfortunately we didn't have the £23 Million that Premier League failures get when they get relegated. That's £23 Million from a league you no longer participate in and you moan about a loan player scoring.

Your bitterness typifies the JCL club that Reading is.

Enjoy your open top bus parade.
