Chris Hughton Slams 'Shameful' Burnley Fans For Booing Gaetan Bong

Kevin Long and Johann Berg Gudmundsson Burnley

Chris Hughton is glad to have points in the bag but says Brighton still have work to do to ensure Premier League survival.

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

The Cameroon defender was jeered every time he touched the ball by home supporters, a response to his recent claim that he had been racially abused by Jay Rodriguez, now with West Brom but still revered in these parts from his time with Burnley.

However, the FA said it was satisfied the complaint was made in good faith by Bong and "there has been no suggestion that this was a malicious or fabricated complaint". "What they should do is look at the two statements - one from the independent committee, one from the FA".

Describing Bong as an "incredibly disciplined and straight individual - as honest a person as you will meet", Hughton also highlighted his displeasure with Burnley fans who sung "he's one of our own" regarding the club's former player, Rodriguez. "I certainly didn't expect it here".

'I was incredibly surprised, I must admit.

With FA Cup finalists Manchester United and Chelsea both set to qualify for Europe based on their current league standings, the Europa League berth that the winners would have earned will be awarded to the team that finishes seventh in the top flight, which is where the Clarets are now sat in the table.

The resolution they have showed all season was again evident as Brighton were never really given a chance of spoiling the party - although a point for the Seagulls was just as valuable as they all but secured their Premier League status and back-to-back top-flight campaigns for the first time since the early 1980s.

"We've still got to make it so effectively, then it's a fantastic achievement if we get there".

"The points we've got on the table in the Premier League, you can't cheat that".

"I've just found that out, I hadn't looked at all the results, just a few chats along the way", Dyche told reporters.

"You're implying strongly, and I agree, there's a massive swing involved".

"This has been a fantastic season".
