Brighton manager Gus Poyet has promised the club will play a passing game throughout the new League One season.The Seagulls drew 1-1 with Sunderland on Wednesday in the first friendly at their training camp in Portugal. [LNB]Poyet explained: "The way that we tried to play is the way we are going to play all season home or away. [LNB]"If it does work, fine. If not then I'm responsible. The main thing is the players understand what I want and are trying to do it." [LNB]He added: "When you become a manager you have two options - play anyhow and win football games or try and make your team play your way."[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Sunderland grabbed a draw in the friendly game after Frazier Campbell scored to cancel out a penalty from Brighton's Glenn Murray, with the Albion striker also having another effort ruled out. [LNB]"The first-half is probably the best we've played since my first day here, and that's the best satisfaction I've had as a manager to see my team play my way," Poyet said. [LNB]"We've got a couple of weeks left and I'm sure we're going to get better." [LNB]The Seagulls now face Portuguese side Portimonense on Saturday.
