sport news Chris Hughton admits defeat increases pressure on Huddersfield game

Brighton boss Chris Hughton accepts his side's late collapse against Leicester has increased the pressure on next weekend's clash with relegation-threatened Huddersfield.

Albion had the opportunity to significantly boost their survival hopes on Saturday but Glenn Murray missed a golden first-half chance and then saw a penalty saved before goals from Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy stole the points for the Foxes.

Hughton's Seagulls remain six points clear of danger with seven games to go following the 2-0 defeat.

They return to the Amex Stadium next Saturday for a meeting with David Wagner's 16th-placed Terriers - who are just three points behind them in the scrap for Premier League survival.

'In this league, you finish your game and you see other results and other results either go for you or they don't and we're all in the same boat in that bottom half,' said Hughton.

'You're either going to get a good result, and if you don't, you hope the others (don't).

'We will need points.

'Next Saturday is our next opportunity to get it and it's at home so yes it becomes a very big game.'
