Hughton in­sists on re­serv­ing judg­ment

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Brighton man­ager Chris Hughton played down sug­ges­tions of length­ier sus­pen­sions for par­tic­u­larly bad tack­les fol­low­ing a hor­rific chal­lenge by Wat­ford’s Miguel Bri­tos on the Seag­ulls’ An­thony Knock­aert in the sides’ goal­less draw at Vicarage Road.

Bri­tos will serve a three­match ban af­ter be­ing shown a straight red card.

“I think prob­a­bly, right at this mo­ment, be­cause it’s hap­pened and it’s fresh, that’s prob­a­bly not the time to talk about whether it should be a longer ban,” said Hughton.

“They’re the de­ci­sions and the top­ics to talk about in the summer, at some other time, just not on the back of when some­thing’s hap­pened, as fresh as it is.

“What I can do is com­ment on the tackle and how I saw it and I knew straight away that it would be a red card.”
