HUGHTON HUNTS AN EX­TRA SO­LU­TION

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Jack Roberts

BRIGHTON & Hove Al­bion man­ager Chris Hughton believes his side must find dif­fer­ent ways to win if they’re to be suc­cess­ful this sea­son in the Cham­pi­onship.

The Seag­ulls are fly­ing high in the league and sat sec­ond ahead of this week­end’s games, fol­low­ing a 3-2 away vic­tory at Black­burn Rovers on Tues­day night.

The mid­week tri­umph was their 15th league game with­out a de­feat dat­ing back to a 2-0 re­verse against Brent­ford as they kept the pres­sure on New­cas­tle United at the top of the ta­ble.

And with plenty of strong clubs up and down the Cham­pi­onship, Hughton wants his side to re­main flex­i­ble to com­bat which­ever op­po­nents they come up against.

“Ul­ti­mately it’s about find­ing the best way to get a win,” he said.

“One thing about this di­vi­sion is you’ve got to try and have a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing, which cer­tainly means hav­ing the abil­ity to go away from home and cope with the el­e­ments.

“You have to be ready for the type of team you’re go­ing to be up against it, whether it’s a di­rect­ness in their play or the qual­ity of their phys­i­cal­ity, it’s about hav­ing enough in our team to match those things.”

PLAN: Chris Hughton
