It was a fair result - Stoke City manager Mark Hughes says about 2-2 draw at Brighton

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has come out to say that he is contented with Stoke's point from their 2-2 draw at Brighton but regretted their inability to see the game out and take all three.
Stoke took the lead twice first through Eric Choupo-Moting's opener and then when Kurt Zouma struck just two minutes after a first equaliser from Pascal Gross. The hosts ultimately restored parity for good when Jose Izquierdo netted after an hour.
The Stoke manager said “It's an away point in the Premier League. You have to be happy with that. I don't think they created too much of note. I'm probably disappointed in terms of the goals we conceded. There were opportunities, certainly with the first one, to nip things in the bud. We missed a couple of tackles on the edge of the box which allowed them to get the ball into a good idea. They got a little bit of luck with the ball going through (Lee Grant's) legs but in general play overall, I thought we were very much in control of the game. They didn't really affect us too much in terms of an attacking sense so an away performance, I suppose you have to be happy with that. I'm slightly disappointed we twice got into winning positions and weren't able to see the game to a conclusion but overall, a point is good so we'll take that.”
