The winger said Albion had to be patient to secure victory.
Kazenga LuaLua says Brighton & Hove Albion had to bide their time to overcome Colchester United at the Amex last night, as four goals in the final 25 minutes ultimately secured a comfortable victory.
The Albion winger put in an energetic display against the League Two side and was delighted to have so much of the ball on the left flank.
He said, “We knew it would be tough playing against a lower league team, but we knew that spaces would open up in the second half.
“When we had our chances we took them, which we didn’t do in the first half.
“My game is to be involved and get the ball as much as I can, which is something I have always done since I've been here. That’s always been the way I play."

The 25-year-old admits he faces a battle to reclaim a regular place in the starting eleven and aims to recapture his scintillating form from the beginning of last season.
“It’s been tough for me because I started last season so quickly and I wasn’t in the side last weekend.
“We’ll see it how it goes; I have to take it game by game and I will hopefully get a chance.
“Looking forward I need to have a good season and hope that I get my chance because I’m so desperate to break into the team and show what I can do.
“I see the people ahead of me and when they’re doing well, it’s not easy for you to play. We have to wait and see how it goes, but anything can happen.
“[Jiri] Skalak is ahead of me, but there’s me, Anthony Knockaert and Jamie Murphy who all want to play. Whenever you get the chance, you have to take it, because there are always other players waiting to overtake you.”
