"I suppose the good part of what we saw today is the way we finished the second half", added Hughton.

Sadio Mane got the ball rolling early on, slotting home after Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic had saved his initial header.

Brighton are in a much more comfortable position, sitting 13th in the standings, with a seven-point gap over the bottom three. It is not like us but it is very hard to give those goals away and get something from the game.

Brighton suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 defeat at arch rivals Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Roy Hodgson's team were in full control of the match, and a second goal arrived just before the quarter-hour mark when Tomkins forced the ball into the bottom corner from 10 yards after Brighton had initially made two blocks from goalbound efforts.

Glenn Murray was first to reduce the deficit when he netted against his former club for the second time in all competitions this term, only for Zaha to strike again in the 24th minute - his first headed goal in the Premier League.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to inspire the comeback, scoring either side of an Eden Hazard equaliser after Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek had struck for Southampton.

But with local bragging rights on the line, as well as precious points, Palace boss Hodgson knows the pressure that his players will be under after previously steering West Brom and Fulham to survival. The club has worked incredibly hard to get here.' However, defeats by Leicester and Everton plus a home draw with Huddersfield last week - in which Dutch midfielder Davy Propper received a red card that keeps him out of tomorrow's game - have led to the odd glance over their shoulder.

The Clarets were soon two ahead as Kevin Long notched his first-ever league goal for the club, rising to convert Johann Berg Gudmundsson's deep corner. "Hopefully, Jeffrey Schlupp will be back in contention in the next couple of weeks".

Burnley hung on to move within two points of sixth-placed Arsenal, with the Gunners travelling to Newcastle on Sunday.
