THESE pictures show Albion fans support and disappointment as the Seagulls were defeated in the final few minutes of their match against Aston Villa.

The match had been on course for a goalless stalemate, but Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings scored against Brighton in the final six minutes of the game.

Graham Potter said that Albion must be critical of themselves after the defeat, but said he was pleased with much of what the did until Watkins' late strike in the 84th minute turned the match.

He said: "I thought up until 83 minutes we did pretty much everything you can here apart from score in terms of controlling the crowd.

"We knew the environment we were going to face and how difficult that is.

"We have to be critical of ourselves. We gave ourselves a chance to win the game but, ultimately, if you don't score, you don't win.

"I think we can be better. But that's something for us to work with and keep trying to work with and keep trying to improve."

Despite having 63 per cent possession, Albion only had two efforts on target - both in the first half.

The match was the first for Villa's new manager and former Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard.

Yesterday's defeat at Villa Park has left Brighton with a run of seven games without a win across all competitions - a stark contrast from the team's excellent start to the season.

Albion now sit in eighth place in the Premier League, behind Manchester United but ahead of Crystal Palace.
