Broja: We deserved three points


Armando Broja was left a frustrated figure after his fifth Southampton goal of the season wasn’t enough to secure all three points against Brighton at St Mary’s on Saturday.

The Chelsea loanee looked to have won the game with his first-half strike, only for Neal Maupay to equalise in the 98th minute to condemn Saints to back-to-back home draws.

Despite the late disappointment, Broja saw positives from the performance.

“It’s a bit of a shame,” he said. “I feel like we deserved to take three points, I thought we dominated the game but it’s a punch in the stomach to concede like that in the last minute.

“We played really well today. We could’ve scored another couple goals. I could’ve scored another couple of chances, but on another day I know I can do better in those situations.

“We’ll keep working as a team and keep developing. We have a good bunch of boys who are all working together, so hopefully we’ll get some points on the board.

“We like to come as a team and press and be aggressive and we showed that from the first minute.

“We were up and they couldn’t play football, so it was good to get a goal early on, but it’s a big disappointment how the game ended.

“We can take positives from the game but should’ve had three points. We’ll take the point and keep moving forward.”
