Chris Hughton says the lads deserve credit for the second half performance against City on Monday.
We hit back from going down in the first half to level via Jermain Defoe and certainly deserved to win with Jermain denied what looked like a clear-cut penalty, Robbie Keane having a goal disallowed and Gus Poyet hitting the post.
Coach Chris reflected: "We were trailing at home on the back of not only a defeat but very poor display at Everton and I think they showed a lot of character in the second half.
"I've no doubts we deserved to get back into the game and should have gone on and won it.
"We came back in the second half at Everton as well but the damage had already been done when we conceded three goals in the first half from set-plays.
"Looking back, they didn't have that many clear-cut chances and I certainly feel it was a game we could have got something out of with a better performance."
