Matchwinner Florin Andone thanked Chris Hughton for handing him his full Premier League debut at ten-man Huddersfield today.

Hughton gave the injury-hit Romanian striker his first start in place of top scorer Glenn Murray as the Seagulls embark on three games in a week.

Andone rewarded him with a diving header from Solly March's cross 20 minutes from time to secure a 2-1 victory.

Andone said: "I am very happy and very thankful for the boss for my chance. The victory is the most important thing. We have a hard game up next on Tuesday (Cystal Palace at home) now too. That is what we are thinking about.

"When I signed for the club I waited a long time for my opportunity and now I am very happy. It is perfect. I have my first goal. I would like to improve my level and be in a good way in the future."

March now has four assists in his last three starts after also setting up Shane Duffy's equalising header on the stroke of half-time.

Steve Mounie was sent-off for the hosts in the 32nd minute by referee Michael Oliver for a high tackle on Yves Bissouma which caught the midfielder on the shin.

The hosts led inside the first minute, Zanka beating Mathew Ryan in the air to head in from Bruno's miscued clearance.

Bruno said: "It is a tough place to come but we had chances and deserved the three points. Of course, the red card will always help but we were better than them today."
