Brighton assistant coach Hamberg on Leicester draw: These players never give up

Brighton assistant coach Bjorn Hamberg hailed his side after they produced another late comeback to earn a 1-1 draw at Leicester.

Danny Welbeck's 82nd-minute header earned a deserved point for the visitors after Patson Daka had put the Foxes ahead at the start of the second half.

It was the fifth time in the last nine Premier League games the Seagulls have scored in the last 10 minutes to rescue a point.

Hamberg, standing in for isolating manager Graham Potter, said: “It is another comeback. The second half was more a reflection of what we are trying to do. It comes from the daily work, every day is where you need to do your best.

“As a group we keep working hard, working for each other and never give up.

“You know if you stay in the game you have a chance, we got a point and are happy to take it.

“Leicester are a good side and we survived a couple of moments in the first half but we were honest enough and knew we could do better. We conceded straight away (after half-time) but it was good to see the reaction. If the game kept playing we would push for a second goal.

“Graham had a direct feed from the game, he was always in touch with a couple of the coaches. Anything Graham wanted to change I had that information in 10 seconds."
