Gus Poyet: Delighted with Brighton's display as they knocked Newcastle out of the cup
Brighton manager Gus Poyet admitted he was delighted at the way his team dumped Premier League Newcastle out of the FA Cup.
An own goal by Magpies' defender Mike Williamson 14 minutes from time gifted the Championship side a famous home win at their impressive Amex Stadium and a place in the fifth round.
And the Uruguayan was quick to praise Will Buckley as the midfielder was instrumental throughout and was involved in Albion's winner.
Poyet told ESPN: "It's incredible how many things have happened already at this stadium and we haven't played here for one year."
And of Buckley he said: "He's unpredictable, when everybody gets a little bit tired he keeps sprinting and going past people."
Poyet added: "We started well again, we started brave. We kept going for it. After 15 minutes Newcastle got the ball and kept passing it.
"We got to half-time and then it was a matter of saying let's do the same and then we know something is going to happen for us."
Meanwhile, man of the match Buckley paid tribute to the Brighton fans who have taken to the club's new stadium.
He said: "I can't even hear myself think, it's just brilliant. It's just a joy to play here, they are like a 12th man."
Buckley added: "It was a hard game, they are a Premiership side and we were on the back foot most of the first half."
