Sky Bet Championship: Brighton penalty debates to be settled by Sami Hyypia

Brighton boss Sami Hyypia has vowed to sort out his side's spot-kick duties after his players argued over who would take their latest penalty.

Adrian Colunga scored from the penalty spot during Albion's 3-3 draw at Norwich on Saturday, but only after a long debate with team-mates about who was going to take it.

"I don't care who takes it, but what I don't want to see is the players fighting for the ball," said Hyypia.

"That puts pressure on the person who takes it and it is unnecessary.

"We need to be much smarter in these situations and not put any extra pressure on the person stepping up to take the penalty."

At the other end of the pitch Hyypia was delighted to see goalkeeper David Stockdale back in action after a spell out with a finger injury.

"David played very well and showed he is capable of making important saves," he added.

"I had no doubts about bringing him back, we were assured before the game that his finger was okay and he was fit to start the game.

"He has used the time he has been out injured and has worked hard to improve and come back physically stronger."
