Brighton Boss Chris Hughton was overwhelmed with joy but not distracted. He challenged his players to go ahead and win the championship title now.
The 2-1 victory against Wigan has now earned Brighton promotion to the premier league.
Brighton’s leading scorers Glenn Murray and winger Solly March’s goals helped the team clinch a 2-1 win over the visiting team.
Huddersfield’s 88th-minute draw at Derby confirmed Brighton’s top flight status marking the second time for the 116-year-old team.
Brighton players were seen prepping up for the promotion party while celebrating their victory with champagne in the dressing room.
‘Promotion is something we feel we deserved. I think we’ve been a great value this season,’ Hughton said.
‘It’s a huge motivation for the team but I don’t want these last three games to go out with a little bit of a whimper,’ he added.
Hughton also claimed that his side’s push to the top flight was definitely a result of last season’s failure to gain promotion.
