Defeat is cruel but Poyet pleased with performance
Gus Poyet is convinced Albion will pick up wins on the road if they play as they did at Hull today.
But he admits his team were “really down” after an unfortunate 1-0 reverse.
The Seagulls boss was pleased with his side, particularly in the second half.
Now he wants them to repeat that display when Cardiff visit The Amex on Tuesday.
Poyet said: “When we had to pass it, we passed it.
“When we had to play one-touch football, we did it.
“When we had to play in behind, we did it.
“We had plenty of shots.
“Normally, in a game like this away from home you are going to win.
“It can’t happen again.
“Can we repeat it on Tuesday? Can we repeat it next Saturday?
“That’s the key now.
“It was difficult to take. The boys are really down.”
He added: “After 75 or 80 minutes I was thinking ‘We’ve done everything. Let’s hope this game is not that cruel’.”
Poyet revealed Vicente had not trained since before the defeat at Swindon on Tuesday due to a minor niggle.
He added: “I suppose every single supporter will go home today a little bit sad.
“It’s a long way to go back home.
“But at the end they have to think if we play like this we will many games away from home.”
