Poyet rues missed chance
Gus Poyet admitted Albion took too long to get going against Birmingham today.
But the Seagulls boss, whose side had the chance to go three points clear at the top of the Championship, also praised the resolute Blues display that beat them.
Birmingham defended stubbornly to grab a 1-0 win on the back of Chris Burke's terrific first-half volley.
Poyet said: "Birminghan had a plan and with a spectacular goal it worked better.
"Of course you give credit to them.
"I’m not going to take anything away from the decision they made to come here and play.
"Then the responsibility for the result is more down to us, no doubt.
"We waited too long to start playing with a high tempo, to create problems.
"We didn’t find the way to make one pass, one cross, one action that would change the game, because that is what it needed today.
"If we score one goal at any time in the second half there was only one way the game was going."
Birmingham manager Lee Clark, who saw his side humbled 5-0 at home by Barnsley last week, said: “I’m just delighted with the response.”
