Tariq Kwame Nii-Lante Lamptey scored his first Premier League goal yesterday, but it was too little to seal a point for Brighton and Hove Albion as Gareth Bale’s goal gave Tottenham Hotspur a hard fought victory.
The 20-year-old wing-back believes Brighton deserved at least a point from the game:
“We definitely deserved something from the game – we gave it our all until the final whistle.
“You can never feel like you’ve done enough until the final whistle goes. It was nice to get the goal, but the main thing is the team and to get something from the game, which we didn’t. On another day we do.”
“It was a fantastic moment for me, but it was unlucky that it didn’t get a result for the team,” the defender said about his goal.
“When you are wing-back on the other side has got the ball, it’s good to get in at the back post and Pascal Gross did really well to find me and I slotted it away.”
Brighton have gone through series of difficult fixtures and the young defender believes they have what it takes to win a point[s] in their next game on Friday against Burnley at the Amex.
“We have had quite a tough run of games, but hopefully now we can start picking up some points.”
