Chris Hughton admitted that 10-man Brighton blew a "real good opportunity" to take a big step closer to Premier League safety after this draw.

Brighton led for just two minutes through Jonas Lossl's own goal, before Shane Duffy's wayward pass gifted Steve Mounie the equaliser. Davy Propper missed a gilt-edged chance in the first minute, and was then sent off in the final quarter, for a studs-up challenge on Jonathan Hogg.

Brighton must still face Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool in a daunting run-in, with Hughton accepting yesterday's draw as a chance missed to seize their own destiny.

"I'm disappointed and frustrated: it was a real good opportunity particularly with the start we had," said Hughton. "But in a game where we weren't at our best, we gifted them a goal and had the two best chances of the game."

Hughton admitted doubting referee Anthony Taylor's decision to send off midfielder Propper, confirming that Brighton will consider appealing the red card. On Duffy's stray pass that gift-wrapped Huddersfield's equaliser, Hughton added: "It's one of those things, he's the first one to hold up his hands that he made a mistake."

Mounie's finish ended Huddersfield's goalless run of 427 minutes, leaving boss David Wagner hailing the Terriers for keeping alive their shot at the "miracle" of Premier League survival.

"Our promotion last season was a fairytale; this season, if we survive, for me, this is another level," said Wagner. "This would be a miracle, and the players are five games away from completing this miracle."
