Balogun lauds Brighton's fans after derby win

Brighton's Glenn Murray is congratulated by his teammates after scoring against former club Crystal Palace

Shortly after Shane Duffy was sent off, Brighton doubled their lead off a corner.

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, is the latest Nigerian to score in the English Premier League and he did so in style on Tuesday; getting one of the goals in Brighton's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

The Nigerian defender has however introduced into the game with the home side already ahead through a Glenn Murray penalty.

Florin Andone came off the bench to replace Murray, and laid down a marker to stay in the team with a fine individual effort for Brighton's third goal.

Wolves are the only bottom-half team to have beaten the Hammers in five matches, with Pellegrini's side winning three of the other four (and scoring three or more in each of those wins).

No one will know more than him that he can't get away with that.

It was the second quickest by a substitute after Daniel Sturridge's goal versus West Ham United - a feat achieved after 24 seconds. Zaha has been involved in half of Palace's goals this season.

Brighton are 10th in the table with 21 points while Burnley are second from bottom on nine points.

Replays appeared to show the Palace man had touched the ball before the Colombian went down, but Glenn Murray converted the spot kick for his ninth league goal of the season.

The Seagulls are unbeaten in three games as they head to Turf Moor.

The 26-year-old won the penalty from which Luka Milivojevic scored their only goal, and McAthur said: "I do not think it is really an issue".
