Hughton admitted the goals his team conceded in the 3-2 defeat to Palace were uncharacteristic, and was left frustrated after a below-par first-half performance at Selhurst Park.

Chris Hughton has warned his Brighton players to keep their cool in the heat of Saturday's showdown with Crystal Palace.

He said, "We arguably had the two best chances in that second half, to get an equaliser or a victor".

Crystal Palace moved six points clear of the relegation zone with victory over Brighton, Huddersfield also boosted their survival chances with a 1-0 win against Watford and Everton were held to a 1-1 draw by Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Their form has however tailed off slightly in the last few weeks with one point from their last three games. I don't feel like they're better than us, so we just need to get the game over and done with, beat them and then they can just go back to wherever they came from, really.

Crystal Palace are in a precarious position entering in the final stretch of matches in the Premier League.

Jurgen Locadia's clever pass on the flank released Izquierdo and after advancing into the penalty area, the Colombian curled a delightful shot into the far corner of the net.

Brighton have conceded 14 goals from corner situations this season, more than any other side.

The opening stages of the second half passed by without incident but shortly after the hour mark, the Seagulls came close to equalising when Murray met a cross at the back post but his volley across goal just missed the far post.

Dale Stephens tried his luck from distance with Wayne Hennessey still getting to his feet after dealing with a cross, but the Welsh stopper got down well to his right.

The stakes could hardly be higher for Palace with Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool having all scored late winners in the last three matches at Selhurst Park while, perhaps even more damagingly, three points became one at Bournemouth last Saturday after Josh King's last-minute equaliser for the Cherries.

This game saw five first-half goals, the most in any Premier League game this season.
