Chris Hughton has saluted Albion's response at Huddersfield to falling behind to the fastest Premier League goal of the season.

Zanka headed in after 58 seconds, outjumping keeper Mathew Ryan, after Bruno misdirected a clearing volley into his own six-yard box.

Steve Mounie saw red for the hosts for a challenge on Yves Bissouma but, unlike against Leicester last week when Albion let a 1-0 lead slip against ten men, they hit back through Shane Duffy and debutant Florin Andone to win 2-1.

Hughton said: "We've had better starts but I thought we responded well, even against eleven men, particularly away from home and at a place where we haven't played well the last two seasons.

"I was really pleased with our game against ten. We were far better against ten today than last week."

Hughton said of Mounie's red card from Michael Oliver: "There's no doubt there's contact. Bissouma's shin shows that. Only the referee can make that decision on the contact, the pace of the game and from his position.

"The only thing I would say in the referee's credit, he was in a very good position, probably the best position, to see it.

"We are probably in a time now - we experienced that two games ago with Dale Stephens (red at Cardiff) - where a good few years ago that wouldn't have been a sending off.

"But the game has changed. We experienced it and somebody will experience next week, the week after and the week after."
