HUGHTON: IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION

30 December 2016

Albion's manager agreed with the decision to postpone the game.


Frustrated Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton said it was the right decision to call off tonight's Championship game against Cardiff City.

Club officials from both teams and referee Chris Kavanagh reached the unanimous decison to postpone the match at 6pm, and Hughton agreed.

Hughton said, "It is very frustrating, particularly with the form that we're in at the moment. The last thing you want is a game called off because you have to get this game back in. It's hugely frustrating, but we have to get on with it now.

"There are always two considerations. One is the safety of the crowd, what the club feel, and the other is what I see on the football pitch. It absolutely is the right decision to call it off from what I saw because of the conditions.
 
"For those that were standing on this side where it's a touch clearer, on the other side the visibility is far worse. I think the forecast is that it will get worse still. It is the right decision to call the game off.

"We feel for the fans and particularly the Cardiff fans, who will  have travelled a long way to get here, but certainly all of these considerations were put into place when making a decision."
