Gus Poyet insists that his side's slip-ups were against Nottingham Forest and Charlton Athletic and not Leicester City.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet has admitted that Leicester City made it very "tough" for his side.

The match ended 1-1 following a late Kazenga LuaLua equaliser and was Brighton's third consecutive Championship draw.

However, Poyet said that the draws against Nottingham Forest and Charlton Athletic are the results that he is most frustrated about.

"The problem was not today," The Argus quotes Poyet as saying. "The problem was Tuesday [against Charlton] and Saturday [against Forest].

"It was a test which shows if you play against that kind of power and are not at your best, which we weren't, it's difficult.

"We were always in the game. It was very tight. It was a one-goal game, maximum two. We had the chance before them. [It was] tough."

A victory would have seen Brighton move into fifth place.
