Poyet pleased with Brighton performance

Poyet would have enjoyed the journey even more if Dean Hammond had not headed wide of a gaping goal but the Brighton boss admitted: "I call that football, we accept things because you can't control everything.

I'm not saying we totally deserved to beat Derby but I think we were slightly better," Poyet said. "I think we had the best chances and the best approach play and most of the ball. Of course there was danger at the end with the fans and the atmosphere but I am going home relaxed today, I like what I see."
