Speaking to Brighton and Hove Albion’s official website, Steve Sidwell has praised the club’s manager Chris Hughton, insisting he is fully deserving of everything he gets.

Last season Hughton’s Brighton suffered promotion heartache, as they lost out on automatic promotion to Middlesbrough before losing a Play-Off semi-final to Sheffield Wednesday.

Despite last year’s setbacks, Hughton has guided the Seagulls to automatic promotion in the Sky Bet Championship this term, with three fixtures of the season still remaining.

Furthermore, Hughton’s side need just three-points to secure the Championship title, having put a blistering run of form together in recent weeks.

Sidwell, who has played a major role in Brighton’s promotion, spoke highly of his manager’s success, he said: “You talk to anyone in the game, they’ve all got great things to say about him (Chris Hughton).

“He’s a well-respected man in the footballing world and fully deserves everything that he’s got.”

Brighton will conclude a magnificent season against Norwich City, Bristol City and Aston Villa, where they will be looking to seal the Championship title.
