Gus Poyet is looking for improvement in his strikers

The Seagulls needed a stoppage-time penalty from David Lopez to secure their 12th draw from 28 matches this season at Blackburn on Tuesday night.

Rovers went ahead through a spot-kick from Scotland striker Jordan Rhodes, but despite seeing his side snatch a point Poyet was left frustrated.

"I need to make sure that we don't keep drawing and drawing because it's too many," said the former Chelsea midfielder.

"Do you know how many games we've lost this year? From 28 we've played we've lost six and we are not in the top six.

"How? Because we draw too many. It's better from now on that we win one and lose one."
