Brighton boss Poyet: Well, at least Suarez scored for Liverpool

Brighton boss Gus Poyet found one bright point from their FA Cup thrashing at Liverpool - Luis Suarez.

Suarez will have to get used to being jeered by opposition fans given the Brighton supporters abused him, even though their manager Poyet has been one of his fellow Uruguayan's staunchest supporters.

And, after manager Kenny Dalglish admitted to the error of asking Suarez to take Liverpool's penalty after Dirk Kuyt had been fouled in the box, even Poyet admitted he was delighted that Suarez got his name on the scoresheet.

"Yes," he said. "Especially after the penalty.

"It wasn't a matter of conceding one more. He needed it. It was important for him."
