Percy Tau made a substitute appearance to earn his Brighton debut in their penalty shootout victory over Newport County.
Tau’s impact has been mainly felt on social media since his recall from a loan spell in Belgium but on Sunday, he showed a glimpse of his best when helping the Seagulls push for a winner.
Solly March’s 90th strike was cancelled out in time added on as Newport sent the match to penalties. Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele made four saves to help his side advance.
Tau will be hoping to make the bench on Wednesday when his side visit Manchester City.
