Sami Hyypia admitted Albion failed to perform for the full 90 minutes today – and not for the first time.

The Seagulls produced a flat second-half display in their 1-1 draw at home to Rotherham.

And their manager conceded they needed to start performing for the full game.

Hyypia said: "That's been a bit of a problem all season.

“We need a lot of chances to score, then we are somehow sloppy or don't concentrate at our own end and the oppositions score from few chances.

"That has been the case for a long time already. I don't know if the players cannot keep their concentration for 90 minutes or what it is.

"We have good spells and then we have spells when we are under pressure and make the crucial mistakes and have a period where we make wrong decisions on the ball as well. Those periods are costing is at the moment.”

Joe Bennett put Albion ahead in first-half stoppage time but Alex Revell relied on 49 minutes.

Hyypia added: "We were talking at half-time that it's very important to start well in the second half, that they will come with a maybe a little bit more energy and we need to be concentrated, very tough and awake to defend in that period.

"And then we all saw what happened and then in the second half I felt we made the wrong decisions on the ball, tried to play very difficult passes and lost the ball. We didn't create as many chances as we should have."
