Chris Hughton has given an enchanting scream to the poorly performing players of Brighton as they try to stop an alarming slump that has put them in serious danger of Premier League demotion.
The seagulls were howled after a toothless display during the costly 2-0 loss to fellow Cardiff fighters.
The latest setback from Brighton – a fourth consecutive defeat without scoring – leaves them only two points above the 18-placed Bluebirds of Neil Warnock in the battle for survival.

Brighton boss Hughton, who was heavily criticized by parts of the club's support after recent poor results, admitted he & # 39; deflated & # 39; felt and thought that togetherness is needed to stop the worrying decline.
& # 39; As a team, as a club and as individual players, there is only one way to ensure that we remain in this division: by fighting as hard as possible, ensuring that we, if we are unable to are to score, goals that we need, that we don't admit, & he said.
& # 39; It is an empty feeling at the moment of a major loss for us. We will have to show a lot of resilience and togetherness in the coming games.
& # 39; Players have no choice but to turn it around, by working hard, working together and working together. & # 39;
After collecting 25 points for New Year's Eve, Albion added just eight to that total of a possible 39 in 2019 and plummeted toward the drop zone.
Their success since promotion to the top flight is largely built on an impressive record at the Amex Stadium.
However, the Seagulls – who have to play Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City in their last five games – scored only two league goals and this year they only picked up four points for their own fans.
& # 39; We miss that real advantage to score goals. The team is feeling the pressure, "Hughton added, bringing his team to Wolves on Saturday.

& # 39; If we don't score goals, we have to be more resilient. We have not been that way in recent games. & # 39;
After being written off by many experts and bookmakers, Cardiff has four games left to start an unlikely big escape, starting with Liverpool's visit to Liverpool.
The significantly inferior goal balance of the Bluebirds at Brighton means that they are effectively three points of safety and boss Warnock has encouraged his players to give up everything in the search for survival.
& # 39; I think (Liverpool) is really a free hit. We are not going to keep up the difference in purpose, are we? & # 39; Warnock said.
& # 39; Liverpool can score five or six against teams like us. They have so many good players.
& # 39; But I think it's a game that we can do well with our crowd and a full house.
& # 39; Every game we have to play as it is our last, and give it our best shot. & # 39;
