Hughton: Brighton win ‘feels like a big one’

Chris Hughton’s Brighton & Hove Albion team made it four wins in seven games on Saturday with a battling comeback victory at Huddersfield Town.

Former Ireland international Hughton was happy with how his team took control of the game after Huddersfield went down to ten men in the first half of the game.

“We were good after conceding the early goal. When they went down to 10 men you have to try and capitalise on that. It was completely different this week. We played against 10 men last week and didn’t do enough on the ball but we did today,” said Hughton.

The Seagull’s manager had some special praise for Romanian striker, Florin Andone, who started up front instead of Glenn Murray, and scored the winner for Brighton with 20 minutes remaining.

“It is difficult because when you are the team with 11 men but we made the extra man show and Florin Andone’s goal was excellent.”

“We thought we would benefit from his runs in behind but we need a centre-forward and it has been Glenn Murray who has been that for us too.”

Every away win is a big achievement in the Premier League and Hughton acknowledged that today’s win was very important for his team.

“It is an important three points away from home. It is important we are picking up points. It feels like a big one for us as well.”
