Leon Balogun has netted his first Premier League goal for Brighton & Hove Albion in their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, December 4.

The Super Eagles defender has however introduced into the game with the home side already ahead through a Glenn Murray penalty.

A red card to Shane Duffy in the 28th minute, however, forced Hughton to shuffle his defence and introduce Balogun for Pascal Gross.
