Hughton was especially pleased for Brighton chairman Tony Bloom, a lifelong Seagulls fan. The aim was to put ourselves within an opportunity to get promotion, and we've managed to do that earlier than what we thought.

Rafa Benitez' Newcastle side, who slipped up against Ipswich on the same day, will have the opportunity to join Brighton in the Premier League next season with a win against Preston on Monday.

He added in The Argus: "We're not there for just one season, we intend to be there for a while".

Hughton's side missed out on automatic promotion on goal difference last season, despite accruing 89 points, and rallying the group after the disappointment of defeat in the play-offs counts as another impressive performance.

Moreover, to see the Seagulls come up to Selhurst and leave wondering why they can't topple the Eagles is something I very much look forward to.

"I don't necessarily think that was the motivation behind what we've been able to achieve this season", he said.

"We made it a little bit hard for ourselves". We were desperate to keep the main players who had done so well last season.

"Having got this far and got into this division we absolutely want to stay there", Barber told Sky Sports News HQ.

Barrow was particularly disappointed by the manner in which Wigan conceded the first goal, saying: "We let in a really poor goal".

Bloom's Midas touch has now helped Brighton & Hove Albion FC progress to the big league in a move which is estimated to be worth £170 million for their first season, and then £290 million by season 2.

Even back in February, Barber said the club had already budgeted for promotion - as well as an alternative financial plan if they failed again.

Wigan were in the ascendancy, but Brighton were not to be denied as they held on for a famous win.

One of Brighton's two Israeli players, striker Tomer Hemed, took to twitter after Monday's match to express his delight, saying: "We're going to the Premier League!"
