Albion players, staff and fans joined as one to celebrate victory at Nottingham Forest.

It turned into an epic rear-guard action in a game which the Seagulls started badly but then dominated.

We asked these three much-travelled supporters for their thoughts on an afternoon at the City Ground.

Then, without wishing to dampen the mood, we asked about concerns over injuries and suspensions.

1. What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance at Nottingham Forest?

James Heasman: A fantastic display, with two different types of performance. With 11 players, a passing display and in control of the game. With ten players a brilliant rearguard display, with good discipline and shape. The celebrations at the end captured everything that is good about football, the fans and team as one - memories that will last a lifetime. I was very impressed that Roberto de Zerbi managed to overtake most of his players to reach the fans first!

Tim Ayling: It looked like we were completely in control until the sending off. They understandably targeted Hinshelwood at left-back, but the team stood up well and worked their socks off. To have so many injuries against an unbeaten home team, it was huge. I just hope we have the legs for Athens on Thursday!

Colin Beales: A great away result considering the amount of injuries we are carrying. I felt we were the better side with the scoreline not representative of the game. In the end, however, with Dunky red-carded for saying what most fans were thinking we had to hang on for all our points. The passion from the manager and players at the end echoed the mood from the stands.

2. Who stood out for you from the Albion team?

James Heasman: A great team performance, but I can't split Pascal Gross, who controlled the midfield and then gave a competent display at full-back, and Jan Paul Van Hecke, who was outstanding after Dunk's sending off, leading by example, and attacking every cross.

Tim Ayling: Joao Pedro had a great game coming on, and was dead on his feet at the end. However, my man of the match was Van Hecke. When Dunk went off we needed a new leader and he really stepped up - phenomenal performance. I also thought Gilmour did well once again, but I seem to say that most weeks. And of course, Mr Dependable Pascal Gross was everywhere and has another two assists to his name.

Colin Beales: I thought van Hecke had a good game. It's a shame he can't keep going at Athens, but seemingly we will need more performances like this at Chelsea and beyond.

3. Where’s your balance between delight at the win and concerns over injuries and suspensions?

James Heasman: I think we needed that win. The injuries are a concern though and I think the club have to reflect as to why there are so many injuries, and look at the type of injuries. There do seem a lot of muscle injuries. Given that other clubs are in a similar position, the whole 'too much football', could also be a factor. Unfortunately, I don't see either FIFA or UEFA reducing the number of games any time soon.

Tim Ayling: I'm a fan, so delighted! I'll leave it to RDZ to worry about injuries and suspensions!

Colin Beales: You can't help but be concerned with the state of the squad, but hopefully it's purely a moment in time and we can push on. If you look at the positive side, it's great for the development of young players like Hinshelwood, who get the time and experience on the pitch and in amongst the first team squad.
