Poyet buoyed by point

30 December 2010 11:30
Brighton manager Gus Poyet was in high spirits after a 1-1 draw against npower League One title rivals Charlton, despite a controversial sending off. The Seagulls boss was delighted with his team, who fought back from a goal behind to earn a point, despite being reduced to 10 men after eight minutes as Inigo Calderon was dismissed for a challenge on Therry Racon. "The sending off looked worse than it was," Poyet told the club`s official website. "Calderon was upset when he saw the referee bring out a red card. "When you play against Charlton and concede a penalty, a goal and a red card inside ten minutes, and still come away with a draw then you have done well. "After those incidents it was all about Brighton. It was all about the way we played, our desire and our commitment. "The players should all be very proud of themselves."
