​Brighton boss Hughton backs West Ham counterpart Bilic

Brighton boss Chris Hughton feels West Ham counterpart Slaven Bilic deserves more time to turn things around.

"Personally, I think it is too soon," he said. "But it's something that we have very much got used to.

"It's the pressure of management, it's the pressure of needing to get results so quickly. The clamour of everybody involved in the club, in the game, that you have to get instant results.

"Certainly when there has been investment in clubs and, of course the foreign owners that we have now want results instantly and it's something that we've got used to.

"I don't see it changing."
