Brighton manager Graham Potter speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "It's sore, I'm bitterly disappointed with the result because I thought we were the team pushing all the way, trying to get the winner ourselves.

"We have to respond, accept it and as painful as it is we have to move forward. You are watching the game, watching the team, we are trying to find the solution to score and to get punished at the end is a painful one.

"That's the nature of the league, how punishing it is, we have done a lot but clearly not enough. Whoever it had come against it would be painful because we were dominant in the game. The boys were doing everything to score, it felt like it was always in their penalty box never mind their half.

"I don't think we played badly, but results-wise we have to be disappointed and respond."

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson to BBC Sport: "It's always great to score in the last minute, especially when we had to soak up a lot of pressure.

"The defending was very good, they threw their bodies on the line. We worked hard to make certain they didn't get many sights at goal. We didn't create as many chances we would like. The two we created from crosses were goals.

"Tonight from the very start we showed we'd make it hard for them to score. The bodies were there, headers were there, blocks were there. We took maximum advantage from the counter-attack.

"We get so hung up on statistics these days. The game is decided by goals. Goals are a question of how well you take your chances and defend theirs."
