Speaking after the game, Brighton midfielder Leo Trossard gave his verdict on the result, and said: “We knew it would be a tough game. They have not lost until now. It was a brilliant performance from us. We kept believing.
“We didn't create many chances but knew even in the last minute you can score a goal. I felt like there was space to turn and then it is just intuition. It went perfectly. I am so happy to help the team win an away game.
“Our third season with the gaffer. Everyone knows how to play and we know each other better. We believe more.”
He added: “It was a special way to win the game, especially to score in the last minute, the emotions take over. It’s a brilliant win for us, it was really tough as Brentford are a really good side, but we dug in and kept fighting for it. It’s nice to get the reward at the end.
“The pitch was a bit dry so we couldn’t get into our game. But we kept believing, it’s nice to score a goal at the end and get the three points.”
Next up, the Seagulls will look to continue their impressive push up the table on Sunday afternoon, when they take on Leicester City at the Amex Stadium.
