Chris Hughton wants Albion to build on their triumph at Crystal Palace when they return to Premier League action at the end of the month.

The 2-1 win at Selhurst Park sealed successive victories after beating Huddersfield 1-0 at home.

The Seagulls resume their bid for survival against fellow strugglers Southampton at the Amex on March 30.

Hughton said: "I will be incredibly disappointed if we don't try to build on this.

"We've got to try to finish the season as strong as we can. That's back-to-back wins. Teams of our level don't get so many of them in a season.

"We've had one three-win streak and we've got to work hard to get as many points as we can."

Hughton says reaching an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley by getting past Millwall in the last eight on Sunday would be a "brilliant bonus" ahead of the international break as he tries to balance fighting on two fronts.

He said: "That's my job. Staying in this division is still the most important thing for me.

"I know the Cup is important to supporters and hence we have given everything we can in the Cup and we will do on Sunday, but making sure we are still in this division next season would be the best and, in my thinking, the most important thing.

"Any progress we can make in the Cup is a brilliant bonus for us."

The Argus: Albion are without the banned Yves Bissouma (above) for the quarter-final at The Den (2pm).

Florin Andone is also a big doubt after pulling out of his intended return to the starting line-up at the end of the warm-up against Palace with a recurrence of the groin/thigh problems which kept him out at the start of the season.

Hughton said: "It was all a little bit hectic. I don't know how bad, certainly it was bad enough for him not to start the game."
