TWO-GOAL Anthony Knockaert delighted the Amex – and then praised a wonder strike by a team-mate.

The French star sent the Seagulls towards last night’s 4-0 win over QPR with a momentum-changing free-kick.

He provided the corner from Connor Goldson to head his side’s third and added a second himself.

But Jiri Skalak fired the goal of the night from 25 yards.

Knockaert told The Argus: “I’m happy with the goals.

“The first one came at the right moment, just before half-time. We needed to score because it was not easy in the first 20 minutes – in fact the first 40, I’d say.

“It was a good position for my free-kick and I was just thinking about hitting the target.

“We needed to score the first goal. It’s all about that when we play at home.

“But Jiri’s strike? Unbelievable! I am so happy for him.

“He deserved it and he is a great lad. It was his first goal for us so he will remember it for a long time.”

Goldson said: “The most important thing at this stage is three points.

“Anthony’s first was a great free-kick and, with Jiri’s, I was screaming ‘Don’t shoot’ and he hits the top corner! They were both great goals and they are both capable of that.”

The defender shrugged off news of Burnley’s late leveller. He said: “We know if we do our job we will be promoted. We have been counting them down from ten games out and every one of them we want to win.”
