Hughton laments Murray's miss
Brighton 0 Leicester 2
Brighton manager Chris Hughton felt Glenn Murray's second-half penalty miss spurred Leicester on to victory at the Amex Stadium.
Striker Murray saw his 77th-minute spot-kick saved by Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before late goals from Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy compounded Albion's misery.
The 2-0 defeat means Hughton's Seagulls remain just six points above the Premier League relegation zone in their battle for survival.
"It was frustrating and disappointing but that's top-level football. It was a game that I couldn't see us losing," said Hughton.
"If you can't see your team losing, then it's about going to win the game.
"But the lift that they got from the penalty miss saw them go and get the first goal. I think it's a moment that changes the game. If we'd scored, I think we would have gone on to win. I didn't see us drop from that moment but what I did see is them get a lift."
Brighton's unsuccessful spot-kick was awarded by referee Chris Kavanagh when Jose Izquierdo was sandwiched in the box by Leicester pair Harry Maguire and Wilfred Ndidi.
Spanish midfielder Iborra then headed home Ben Chilwell's fine delivery with six minutes to go and, after midfielder Ndidi was dismissed for a second booking following a challenge on Shane Duffy, England striker Vardy tapped home the second in stoppage time.
