Seagulls need Poyet's positivity

15 December 2009 06:54
Brighton striker Elliott Bennett says they will start winning games if the team can adopt the positive mental attitude of their manager, Gus Poyet."If we all keep believing in the way the gaffer wants us to play and perform like we've done, there's no doubt we'll win games," he told BBC Sussex. [LNB]"Everyone has got to believe in what he wants to do and pull in the right direction to get results." [LNB]Brighton currently stand 21st in League Two, two points adrift of safety. [LNB]And Bennett, who has netted just three times for the Seagulls since his summer move from Wolves, insists that they have the capability to be a lot higher. [LNB]"It's massively frustrating," he said. "I think the players we've got here, the way we're playing, we shouldn't be where we are.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "But, obviously, the table doesn't lie." [LNB]Brighton can look at the example set by Saturday's hosts Swindon Town of just what can be achieved. [LNB]Until their 3-0 thumping to Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday, Swindon had won six times in an unbeaten seven-game run, hauling themselves from near the foot of the League One table on the last day of October to the fringe of the promotion race. [LNB]Bennett, who turns 21 on Friday, will be hoping that the Seagulls can turn the corner too. [LNB]And matching the result they managed in their last away outing when they won 1-0 at Exeter would earn him a nice, late birthday present. [LNB]"Hopefully we can start picking up some points and pull ourselves away from that area because no-one wants to be there," said Bennett. [LNB]"It's not a nice place to be, and we'll do all we can at Swindon to pick three points up."
