Brighton take point at Burnley to edge closer to safety

The point edged Brighton towards Premier League safety but Hughton was unhappy with the home crowd's reaction to left-back Bong.

In their first meeting this season, Brighton and Burnley played to a scoreless draw.

Rodriguez, now at West Brom, was accused of racially abusing the Brighton defender when the two Albions met in January. Burnley-born Rodriguez was charged by the Football Association but an Independent Regulatory Commission "determined that on the balance of probabilities the allegation was not proven" against Rodriguez, who criticised Bong for choosing "to publicly condemn" him.

Rodriguez, meanwhile, has continued to protest his innocence and Burnley fans sang "Jay Rodriguez, he's one of our own", leading to criticism from Hughton.

"What they should do, the Burnley supporters, they should look at the two statements that came out afterwards - one from the independent committee and one from the FA".

"We know we have work to do and everyone is aware of the challenge that we have and the magnitude of the games we have, but we'll go into every game trying to get points and believing that we can get points".

"He's an incredibly disciplined and strong individual, as honest a person as you could meet".

"I was incredibly surprised, I must admit".
