The Nigerian defender was 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.

Just seconds into his appearance, Balogun found the back of the net with his first involvement of the game.


The goal was the first for Balogun who moved to Brighton from Bundesliga outfit Mainz during the summer transfer window.
