Poyet: What a goal!
Gus Poyet reckons he saw the most spectacular goal of his time as Albion manager today.
And Craig Mackail-Smith’s first against Burnley wasn’t bad either!
Mackail-Smith put Albion ahead with a superb volley and then bettered it with an overhead kick to restore the lead as the Seagulls won 3-1 at Turf Moor.
Poyet referred to the second and said: “I don’t remember in my time at Brighton a goal so spectacular.
“We have had great moves and Kazenga LuaLua from free-kicks.
“But this was so difficult, so much about the timing.
“The power on the shot was incredible.
“It was coming. If we want to be at the top we need to win away from home, not just at home. I’m absolutely delighted.”
Poyet praised a controlled performance by his side.
He added: “We had to know when to be patient in possession and when to go and create.”
Andrew Crofts left the action with what Poyet described as a muscle injury which will sideline him out for up to three weeks.
That would appear to rule him out of Wales’ two forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.
