“We have to pick ourselves up grow from this game and make some positive adjustments on the pitch” said Brighton manager Melissa Phillips after Seagulls beaten 3-1 by Tottenham in the Women’s Super League.
Despite Brighton taking an early lead through Elisabeth Terland in the eighth minute, Tottenham equalised on the stroke of half time through Martha Thomas with Phillips saying, “We were incredibly disappointed to not go in 1-0 at half time I think it changed the game”.
There was a triple change at half time for Brighton with goalscorer Terland making way. Asked if this was injury-related Phillips said “Terland has a small niggle that we’re managing so we thought that might be a change we would have to make early in the game, we’ll have to see how she is after some recovery”.
Terland currently sits joint top scorer of the WSL with four goals in four games. Brighton face Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal in their next four games with Phillips saying, “We have to look at where we can manage games better regardless of who we play we know the challenge ahead and we’ll take things one game at a time.”
