BRIGHTON cen­tral de­fender Shane Duffy was de­lighted to have the last laugh af­ter find­ing him­self pub­lic enemy num­ber one at his for­mer club Black­burn Rovers.

Duffy, who left Black­burn for Brighton this sum­mer, marked his re­turn by scor­ing his first goal for his new club in their 3-2 win at Ewood Park on Tues­day night.

He was booed through­out by the Black­burn fans and said: “They were giv­ing me some, I gave it back. I en­joyed it. It’s foot­ball, I’ve got no hard feel­ings.”

Duffy was pleased to break his goal duck and added: “It was com­ing I think. For­tu­nately it was against Black­burn.

“I’ve been dy­ing to get off the mark but it’s the three points that mat­ter. I’d been dis­ap­pointed that I hadn’t scored.

“I’d been close the last cou­ple of weeks and I had a feel­ing it might be the night. The first chance I got I stuck it away. Hope­fully that’s me off and run­ning.

“We con­trolled the whole game but were sloppy at the end. It was dis­ap­point­ing to con­cede two.”
