Roman Saiss scored to extend Brighton’s winless streak to 11 games in one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Premier League. Saiss scored just before the break after a brilliant pass by Ruben Neves. This was Wolves’ first goal for nearly a month. Brighton was toothless in attack and failed to trouble Jose Sa in the Wolves goal.

Managers Reaction 

Brighton boss Graham Potter: “There are always concerns when you don’t win and we have to deal with that statistic. We’ve had lots of draws in that time. We’ve had some decent performances and some good games when we could have won but we haven’t and you have to deal with the facts. We haven’t won for a while and we have to deal with it.”

Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “We created a lot of chances, that is the main thing. When our strikers didn’t score, [Romain] Saiss appeared, that is why he’s known as the Maldini from Morocco. We worked hard, the way we defended and attacked set pieces. It was a beautiful goal.”
