Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter hailed the impact of Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau who registered his first assist for the club as the Seagulls were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Tau was introduced as a substitute in the 73rd minute and provided an inch-perfect through-ball to Danny Welbeck, who opened the scoring in the 84th minute.
Brighton were left disappointed, though, after scoring what seemed at first a late winner when Said Benrahma equalised in the 87th minute.
It was Tau's first goal involvement in the Premier League since being recalled by Brighton at the beginning of the year.
Speaking after the final whistle, a slightly disappointed Potter was left ruing that Brighton failed to see out the win but took heart in holding an impressive West Ham side to a draw.
"It could have been a bit more as we were 1-0 up with not long to go, but I wouldn't say we deserved to win," Potter said as quoted by the Brighton & Hove Independent.
"I'm a bit disappointed with the end, but it's a decent point against a team who have had a really good season and were fighting for the points.
"It's a credit to the players again, they limited a good team to not many chances."
Potter then reserved special praise for Tau and the South African's impact off the bench following his impressive assist for Welbeck.
"It was a nice goal from us," Potter added. "It was a great finish and a great pass from Percy.
"Percy came on and had a really good impact. He found some nice space, and it was a great weight of pass for a nice assist.
"I thought Percy with his left foot could give us versatility in behind that back-line."
Brighton, who occupy 17th position in the Premier League standings next, face Manchester City in a league clash on Tuesday with Tau again, hoping to make a similar impact.
Kick-off is at 20:00.
