Jack Hinshelwood has been backed to keep improving – as Albion hope to see him have fun away from home.

The Sussex-born midfielder’s post-match celebrations at the Amex have quickly become a popular aspect of home victories.

He was at it again after the 4-1 win over Crystal Palace, in which he scored.

Hinshelwood’s three goals to date have all come at key moments in home wins.

Albion goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen, three years his senior at 21, said: “It’s brilliant. He is doing such a good job and he is becoming such an important player for us as well.

“To be as stable as he is at his age is brilliant.

“He just has to keep doing such a good job and he has to keep improving and hopefully we will enjoy a lot of his goals.

“I think he always celebrates the most, especially when we win, and the fans love it.

“And they should. He is a Brighton boy and he loves the club so much he deserves it.

“He needs to just keep giving us reasons to celebrate.”

Albion boss Roberto De Zerbi will again make a call in goal between Verbruggen and Jason Steele for the trip to Tottenham on Saturday.

But the Dutchman did not see beating Palace necessarily as a turning point in the season.

He said: "Of course it gives us confidence but we already had confidence.

“We know we are working the right way and we are going in the right direction.

“We keep doing what we are doing and the results will come.”
