The Seagulls were able to win thanks to a goal by Shane Duffy in the dawn of the first half and another by Florin Andone at the 69th-minute mark

Brighton and Hove Albion beat Huddersfield 2-1 in the English Premier League and climbed 11th in the table.

And for defender Lewis Dunk this victory is super important.

“It’s a massive win and pushes us higher up the table. It was always going to be tough, but we showed the right mentality and reacted well after conceding an early goal,” he told the club’s website.

“They got a man sent off, which made it easier for us, but it showed last week that it’s not always easy playing ten men. It was completely different to last week as we made sure we punished them, kept the ball and made them run.”

“We had to win after going down to ten men last week, and we couldn’t let this game slip. We had to get this job done and thankfully the lads popped up with the goals,” the defender added.

“It’s still frustrating that we still didn’t kill the game off and it showed in the last five minutes that it’s never over. We need to make sure we kill games off in the future.”
