Watford manager Malky Mackay was frustrated that his side could not turn possession into chances at Vicarage Road.
"It was a below-par performance for us. They're disappointed because we didn't click in terms of the chances at goal," he said.
"We had a lot of pressure in the second half and we had the one where the goalkeeper spreads himself and blocks Will Buckley's attempt from five or six yards but, that apart, we probably didn't test Brighton as well as we should."
