Oscar: We must believe we can make history

Oscar Garcia attempts to rally his troops in the play-off first leg defeat to Derby

Oscar Garcia attempts to rally his troops in the play-off first leg defeat to Derby

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Albion boss Oscar Garcia has urged his players to re-write Championship history in the play-offs by overturning a first leg deficit at home against Derby County.

The Seagulls are playing catch-up in the return leg at the iPro Stadium on Sunday after losing 2-1 at the Amex last night.

No side in the second tier has come from behind in the first leg at home to reach the final and Oscar will use that as extra motivation for his players.

He said: “It’s something we can think about and it could be a good reason to motivate the players more. We have to believe, we need to believe and we will go there to get a result.”

Oscar had no complaints about Derby’s penalty, awarded by referee Roger East for a foul by Matt Upson on Craig Forsyth, which allowed Chris Martin to cancel out Jesse Lingard’s early strike for the Seagulls.

Martin’s strike against the crossbar on the stroke of half-time cannoned in off the back of Tomasz Kuszczak to give Derby the edge but Oscar felt Albion should have been given two spot-kicks themselves, for an early challenge by Forsyth on Inigo Calderon and for shirt-pulling in the second half by Jake Buxton on Leo Ulloa.

The Spaniard said: “It was a totally unfair result. We were better than them in all areas, apart from in front of goal, the most important area, but I’m really proud of our performance.

“If the ref had given us the penalty it would have been an even better start and another one in the second half but the referee didn’t give them and we know we have to improve in front of goal.”

Key we go for it again from early on on Sunday. With a change of luck from Derby to us we'd then go through. Not going for it or leaving it late should not be an option.

Most of the pressure is now on Derby

Morning boys

We are not out off by a long way I no people will be waking up this morning feeling a bit down, don't be lads it's halftime, we dominated the first 25 mins we could easily been a couple off goals up before we gave away that penalty, they seem to off got back in to the game when Buckley got injured, we seemed to off lost our momentum going forward when Will went off, we had two pen shouts turned down on another day we might off got at least one, there goalkeeper was outstanding making three fantastic saves man off match in my view,there second goal was a freak goal Thomas could do nothing about that, I can't remember Thomas having to make a save all game, I would bring Ince in for Jake, biggest worry is Buckley will he be fit for Sunday,

We have to believe we can beat these on Sunday, I for one is looking forward to being at derby on Sunday and getting behind the lads like we did at forest,
Up the Albion!!!!

Shot ourselves in the foot.Oscar needs to be more positive with his substitutions.The second half was crying out for CMS.The appearance of Solly added nothing.The removal of Orlandi took away our only creative midfield player.The performance of JFC was average throughout,lying deep and giving the ball away too often when not under pressure.Yet he played ninety minutes.Derby are just a very unspectacular hard-working outfit,nothing special.We stand a great chance on Sunday.

Don't think we did much wrong. CMS looked sharp when he came on, and I actually thought that Solly did too. KLL reignited a quietening crowd although was a bit predictable. Overall Derby had few chances and their 2nd was very fortunate. Another day we could have won 3-1 with a couple of penalty appeals turned down, hitting the bar and great saves from their keeper. We are still in this since derby have shown they leak goals all season. Let's get behind them rather than try and pick holes in what was generally a good performance!

Agree on JFC but not on Solly or Orlandi.
Solly created some openings when he came on and added some much needed pace, while I thought Orlandi's contribution was well below par and lacked any creative penetration.
We certainly didn't have much luck and we're not out of it by any means because Derby, while incisive going forward are ordinary under pressure.
That said, the way the game changed after the penalty shows we're a bit brittle too so it's still a tough one to call and its certainly not over.

I agree I thought Jake looked lost on the pitch last night one point I didn't think he was on the pitch, Orlandi great player but I wish he would do a simple pass instead of trying a flash pass, need to keep things simple, just my opinion

Haven't seen the tv coverage yet to know if they were pens or not but I have felt that over the season refs have generally given the benefit of the doubt to the opposition more often than not,

That aside after a great start & getting a deserved goal we reverted to type & thought we had done enough. Rather than keep Derby on the back foot the tempo dropped after scoring & we allowed them to get a grip of the game. We sat back & gave them space to play their one touch football & while their second goal was lucky they looked the only team likely to score for the rest of the half.
I was also quite relieved that they settled for what they had in the second half rather than try to kill the tie off because they looked more than capable of doing that & In the end we probably deserved a draw for our pressure without creating any real clear chances. although Grant made a couple of good saves.
JFC & Andrews were out of their depth & I'm afraid with those two in the engine room it's always going to be a struggle against better teams. Even though we were losing they sat deep & often looked like two extra centre backs. Upson probably had his worst game of the season at the wrong time & apart from the foul for the penalty rashly committed himself early in the build up to it. I've not been his biggest fan but I felt Greer was probably our best player & have never seen him as determined or aggressive in his challenges.
However yet again virtually every time we went forward in the second half Ulloa was alone in the box surrounded by 3/4 defenders.
So when Oscar keeps telling us he favours attacking football & wants players to be brave he is either bull*****ing or the players aren't listening.
I've a hunch training is too focussed on work with the ball & technique while forgetting the fact that fitness is also a major part of the game. How else do you explain the fact we can't play at a higher tempo for any sustained period or players don't seem capable of getting into the box on a regular basis.
We must sign players for next season with more energy who can get around the pitch like some of the Derby players did when they counter-attacked. You can only play fluent one-touch football if the man with the ball has options with players constantly running off the ball.

Still, despite these moans I quite enjoyed the game.

Think your clutching at straws here yes you dominated the first 20-25 minutes and I would of expected that from the home team but you didn't really cause any problems in the final 3rd.

We were dangerous going forward and scored two goals from playing that way I would of expected us to be more direct in the 2nd half but we sat back far too deep instead of killing off the game.

The penalties would of been harsh not many refs would of given them not clear cut enough, Upson should of been yellow carded 100% so both teams did get away with things that on another day they may not.

yes Brighton were the better side over the 90 mins but we played the better football when we did and looked far too good for you going forward you just couldn't cope, but we didn't do it enough.

Its still evenly poised the first 20 mins on Sunday will be the deciding factor as was last night the first goal is crucial for either teams.

I think we have the better players but Derby moved the ball better than us, they always had a couple of options for a pass where we sometimes had a player in posession with no one moving for him. We need to work just a little bit harder in cutting off their options, and giving ourselves more, and we will have the beating of them in the second leg.

On another day and a different game we could have won that game. We just didn't have the luck and the ref wasn't giving us anything. Derby weren't better than us but made the most of what opportunities they had.
It'll be a different game on Sunday when we might get the opportunity to put a few goals away. Our away support will be crucial. UTA

I think you are spot on there about our "engine room" Elljam. We desperately need some pace, forward momentum, and dare I say a bit of skill, guile and craft in the midfield (and even a goal now and then!). Compare our current midfield with the options we had last year with a fully fit and in form Orlandi, David, Bridcutt, and occasional Vicente. Assuming Stephens is still injured we need to get Ince and March in.

I've got to agree about Derby causing us problems when they went forward. They should have been more positive in the 2nd half because they could have killed the tie off, instead of leaving us in with a shout.
Although I've just seen our penalty shouts & thought either could have been given but refs just don't have the bottle to give penalties for shirt-pulling but will happily give a free kick for the same offence by the attacker.

The first would of been in open play but for being hacked down and the 2nd was in open play via a deflection.

A fair result would have been a draw, you were brilliant for the first 20 minutes but like someone said I would have expected you to be given the circumstances you got in the play-offs and that you were the home team, I was happy to concede just the one! I thought we were poor for long periods and were rescued by some good counter attacking football. Thought Lua Lua looked dangerous, the sort of player that can change a game in an instant, it was just the end product that was missing. Anyway I really enjoyed the game, end to end stuff. Only negative was I thought Garcia seemed a bit bitter and gave a rather strange interview, especially saying you dominated in all areas, you definitely were the better side over 90 mins though but just seemed a fraction childish as though he was trying to convince himself. Looking forward to Sunday!

Ninety minutes to play. We have come back from being a goal down several times this season (unlike last season).
With grit and determination Brighton can pull this back, but we need more bodies in their box.
UTA ! and no one come home from Derby until you've lost your voice!
There are still a few tickets left (returns!!!!) I can't believe it !

Outstanding post Derby fan.Believe me my friend most of this lot don't even really go to games and are just PR people working for the vile players at the club after more free money.Like you point out Brighton looked far too negative and yet again no support in the box and no numbers going forward.Like you say when you did play your game Brighton had no answer.This lot would never just admit Derby came and did a very good job and just did what their outstanding manager told them to do.When you came at Brighton we was all over the place.Thats the real reason these Brighton freeloaders are still not playing for prem-league teams.That would be taken apart week in and week out.

The first would of been in open play but for being hacked down and the 2nd was in open play via a deflection. You make your own luck I'm afraid you were far too negative no support in the box and no numbers going forward, When we actually did play all be it not as much as we normally do you had no answer and that is why we won the match. We didn't have to play attacking football as we didn't need to chase the game you will see a diff side on Friday as we were poor but still won the game[/p][/quote]Outstanding post Derby fan.Believe me my friend most of this lot don't even really go to games and are just PR people working for the vile players at the club after more free money.Like you point out Brighton looked far too negative and yet again no support in the box and no numbers going forward.Like you say when you did play your game Brighton had no answer.This lot would never just admit Derby came and did a very good job and just did what their outstanding manager told them to do.When you came at Brighton we was all over the place.Thats the real reason these Brighton freeloaders are still not playing for prem-league teams.That would be taken apart week in and week out.
