Elliott Bennett upbeat over Brighton & Hove Albion draw

Brighton winger Elliott Bennett says they must stay positive after keeper Caspar Ankergren's blunder gifted Rochdale a late equaliser on Saturday.

Speaking after the 2-2 draw Bennett told BBC Sussex: "We've taken four points from the first two games. We'd have liked six but it wasn't to be.

"We had the game completely under control. It is disappointing but we can't dwell on this.

"We need pull together now, go up to Hillsborough, and get a result there."

Summer signings Matt Sparrow and Gordon Greer will be suspended for the trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, but Bennett feels it will be a chance for squad players to prove their worth.

"Matt and Gordon are massive players, the gaffer [Gus Poyet] brought them in for a reason as they add to the team," he said.

"But he has built a squad around using everyone so the lads who are on the bench have got a chance to come in a stake a claim."
