Brighton have lost their last three matches at the Amex and wil be targeting victory at home to Newcastle tonight to edge closer to Premier League safety.

Asked about the importance of a strong start, Hughton said: "If I look at our last performance here against Cardiff, I thought we started the game very well.

"It is about starting well but it's the moments after that as well. I thought we started with a really good period and then we go 1-0 down against Cardiff with what you regard as a little bit of a special goal.

"It was then about recovering from that.

"A good start will help but ultimately it's about putting in a 90 minute performance that's going to get us a result."
