​Hughton hopes for Brighton win before international break

Chris Hughton wants to go to the international break on a high note with Burnley.

Hughton knows that it is always tough when you lose a game before a break, as it means the players and fans feel down for weeks.

It is why he wants to get a great result against Fulham, which he knows will be a challenge.

"There is pressure on all games," Hughton said to Sky Sports of the game."Going into the international break, you know you won't be playing for a couple of weeks, and for us a little longer as we play Southampton on the Monday night, there is always a better feel going into that international break knowing you have had a good result.

"We have had two games away from home, we got a wonderful result in our last game at home [3-2 win over Manchester United] so any extra pressure going into games it's one you welcome.

"It's a game that we will do everything we can to try and win - we are at home and we will try and work on the best elements we can. Any pressure that comes with it you have to welcome."
