Winger Noone grabbed his first goal of the season as the Seagulls leapfrogged Southampton and Derby at the summit with a 2-0 win over Peterborough at the Amex Stadium.
"With the international break coming up, it is going to be good to see us on top of the table for two weeks," said Noone.
"We deserve to be there, and it is up to us to carry on our good form.
"It was very pleasing to get my first goal at our new home, but the defence played a key role for us in this game.
"We were always going to score but had to be careful at the back, and the result can only give us more confidence and belief."
