The Brighton and Hove Independent are reporting that Chris Hughton is expecting a reaction tonight.
Two back to back losses have seen Brighton drop to five points behind Newcastle United in the race for the Sky Bet Championship title and they are in danger of dropping to third as Huddersfield Town are only six points behind with a game in hand.
With the race for automatic promotion hotting up now, Chris Hughton knows that his Brighton side will need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible to avoid a repeat of last year, where they narrowly missed out on the top two.
Reflecting on a lacklustre 3-0 loss against lowly Nottingham Forest and looking ahead to tonight’s clash with Rotherham, Hughton said:
“Saturday was a blow for us.
“They’re the moments where you have to make sure you stick together, say the right things and more importantly, expect a reaction.
“Generally, that’s what we’ve had from this group of lads and we’ll need to expect that again.”
