Burn happy with Seagulls display

28th January 2019, 07:39 by Nick Harris

Dan Burn believes he has given Brighton manager Chris Hughton something to think about following an impressive debut.

Burn, signed from Wigan in the summer but loaned back to the Sky Bet Championship club for the first half of the season, finally pulled on a Seagulls shirt in Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round stalemate with West Brom.

The 26-year-old contributed to a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw at the Amex Stadium and was named the sponsor's man of the match.

With England international Dunk and Republic of Ireland regular Duffy ahead of him in the pecking order, Burn accepts his first-team chances may be limited.

"Obviously I'm not going to get many opportunities here as we've got good international centre-halves, and it's up to me to take my chance when it comes," he told Brighton's website.

"Thankfully I did that. We probably could've done without the replay but, on a personal note, it means I can possibly get another game.

"I'm glad we kept a clean sheet and we're still in the cup."
