Mackail-Smith urges patience in second leg

The Argus: Craig Mackail-Smith Craig Mackail-Smith

Craig Mackail-Smith says Albion must not panic as they try to come from behind in the play-offs against Derby County.

The striker insists there is plenty of time at the iPro Stadium tomorrow to repair the damage inflicted by Thursday’s 2-1 defeat in the first leg.

Mackail-Smith told The Argus: “The most important thing is getting a good start and not panicking because we are a goal down.

“We could panic and then leave ourselves trying to catch up one or two goals, so I think we have just got to be patient.

“If we get one it goes to extra-time, so there’s no worry about going all out straight away.”

Mackail-Smith has warned Albion could be picked off again by the counter-raiding Rams, as they were at the Amex, if they chase the game too early.

He said: “They were great on the counter-attack. They went with pace and lots of players. You could see why they scored so many goals in the league and why they came third in the table.

“They are dangerous and we have to be aware of that but defensively we have been fantastic this season.

“I thought we dealt with it pretty well and again on Sunday I think we’ll do the same, then it’s down to the boys at the front to get the goals."

Morning

A bit off topic but yesterday saw that we were being linked to midfilder Toko Nzuzu Bundebele of Swiss side grasshoppers of Zurich, usually take transfer reports with a pinch of salt, but this seems to have been started outside of the uk press and Brighton are not the biggest known abroad so maybe something to it, he is out of contract in June and is 23.
Does anyone have any further news on it or thoughts on the player

He is a central midfielder and is in the Swiss national team and is valued at £1.1 mill. Nationality-Congo. Yes it appears a strong link not reported anywhere here and reports in the Swiss sports press give information about the Albion and their fight in the play offs.

Thanks Guys. Can see a trend forming if this report true of OG going for a rebuild of early 20 players (Stevens in already) Would not bet against Lingarrd joining ? Prem or not looking forward to next season. Pre derby game actually caught Paul Barber interview on sky ,pains me to say it he came over very well ,spoke well of OG well mannered style which in this day and age means a lot.
Whatever happens on Sunday we have reasons to be cheerful.
Following on from another thread what a poor couple of teams Wigan and QPR were he'll bent on elbowing of the ball and in front of a half empty stadium. Think they have both been spoilt and indulged to long at the top table of football.

Typed in Toko Nzuzu Bundebele to google and came up with this from a site called www.Blick.ch that is German.
Rough Translation.
GC Toko ready for the island
Toko is before signing with the English club Brighton & Hove Albion.
One thing is clear: The Ur-hopper, since the age of 13 at GC , signed in the next few days, a three-year contract with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Yes I watched 10 minutes of it, 14,000 gate! So poor , as you say no intent other than wind each other up?
As for this guy from grasshoppers , it would seem we are looking to fill our two weaknesses , age and midfield , I thought against derby it showed two things, lack of creativity, and lack of pace/ power..
Of the starting 11 we had no one who can tackle or rouse things along,
I wonder if we will be looking at Ince as a central defender next season?
Jfc Orlandi Andrews Buckley , are not battling types who can get to grips with a passing side.
Young Forster caskey showed lack of technical ability too,
I have to say Derby were a class side , 2 touch football with pace and desire to score .. The fullbacks were the best I have seen at the Amex , and the gulf between the two sides was about 15 points over the season.
On a positive , solly march went down the right wing and crossed with his right foot, sadly not a single Albion player in the 6 yard box! That summed up our season, however well done solly , clearly working hard on that aspect of your game.

So Toko is from the Congo? Wonder how this would fit in with Greg Dyke's proposals? Is he really a first class international player? Are Championship clubs going to be allowed to sign players from outside the EU at this level? One of his points was that many players signed by Prem clubs as "world class" ended up in Championship or lower after one season. I know this could all be a long way off, if at all, but it is food for thought.......

Just two other thoughts, Steve mc claren took over Derby in September 2013, what a great job he has done, and rumour is Steve Cook is about to sign for Fulham ,fee around 1.7 million ... Funny how we had a glut of central defenders a few years ago, now struggling for cover on the bench Sunday .

"Pains me to say" ....... re Paul Barber.

Cannot think of anything factual and not hearsay from the usual vocal minority of whiners), that Barber has done in his role in working for TB and the club that could cause animosity about Barber. He is just an employee, albeit a senior one, and on all major decisions like the removal on gross misconduct the true power being the shareholders and TB would have been at the forefront of the decision making. Likewise, TB along with the FFP rules would have handed Barber and his team a capped budget determining the transfer fees and wages spend.

Barber is doing a sound job.
