Buckley happy to let Williamson take credit for Brighton's winner in shock win over Newcastle

Brighton midfielder Will Buckley said he did not care if his winning goal was given as an own goal from Newcastle defender Mike Williamson, after the Seagulls dumped the Magpies out of the FA Cup.

Buckley's 76th-minute shot struck Williamson before looping over goalkeeper Tim Krul as the npower Championship side knocked the Barclays Premier League side out to claim a place in the fifth round at the Amex Stadium.

'I'd like to have it but who cares We're through to the fifth round!' he said.

Buckley paid tribute to the Brighton fans who have taken to the club's new stadium.

'I can't even hear myself think, it's just brilliant. It's just a joy to play here, they are like a 12th man,' he also told ESPN.

Buckley added: 'It was a hard game, they are a Premiership side and we were on the back foot most of the first half.'

Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan was happy to play his part after being called on to make important saves in the second half.

He said: 'You have nothing to do the whole game then you have something to do so I did it.

'You just have to enjoy it and give everything.'

Brighton manager Gus Poyet also marvelled at the way his team and the club have settled in at the stadium.

He said: 'It's incredible how many things have happened already at this stadium and we haven't played here for one year.'

Of Buckley he said: 'He's unpredictable, when everybody gets a little bit tired he keeps sprinting and going past people.'

Poyet added: 'We started well again, we started brave. We kept going for it. After 15 minutes Newcastle got the ball and kept passing it.

'We got to half-time and then it was a matter of saying let's do the same and then we know something is going to happen for us.'

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew admitted his team had failed to take their chances.

'I felt we weren't threatening their goal enough. They defended well, Brighton, to be fair to them.'

Pardew added: 'We had a good grip of the game (in the first half), we felt comfortable.

'We just struggled to get more shots on goal, to get more chances.'

Pardew was not surprised his side were not awarded a penalty in the closing stages when Brighton's Ashley Barnes appeared to handle the ball.

He said: 'We haven't had one of them all year so we weren't expecting one today.

'I can't really fault my players too much in terms of the commitment they have shown.'
