Chris Hughton: "All we've seen of Shay is him coming in and training and conducting himself like he always has. As far as I know there has been no progress there.

"We're working hard behind the scenes and we do realise we need to bring in two or three new players. We're hopeful that by the end of the transfer window we'll be able to bring them in.

"You always want to claim three points at home but in the period when we were 2-1 down they were always a threat up front and at that point you'd probably have settled for a draw.

"Andy Carroll has made a very telling contribution in the two games he's played and I was very pleased he got the goal."
