On Saturday Brighton and Hove Albion made it back to back victories and clean sheets with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park.
With a worry over Glenn Murray following the horrific collision he suffered early on in the game that saw him whisked off to hospital for precautionary tests, news later in the evening that he was fine was the icing on the cake of the victory which came courtesy of Beram Kayal’s goal roughly on the half-hour mark.
A number of players took to social media following the match to celebrate the result, and centre-half duo Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy certainly received their plaudits following Duffy’s own message to fans.

The Great Wall of Brighton was impenetrable again today. Lewis, Maty and yourself were real standouts in a very solid, hardworking team performance.

Watched the game. Don't need stats. 2nd half was toothless pressure tbh

Well done to you and Lewis. You show that despite what the pundits say there is still a place for hard fair committed defending. Possibly the best defensive partnership in the premier league??

The dup continue to play a massive part in our hopes for a bit more this year than simply consolidation in the top-flight once again.
