Speaking after the match,Chris Hughton said;

”The Anthony Knockaert foul, I was very close to it and what you had was two players who went equally for the ball.

”My first impression was neither was going to get booked.

”I felt the right decision was a yellow card.

”Yes, I was going to take him off before the goal and it didn’t change my mind.

”At 1-1 if you had offered me a draw, I would have taken it.
