The FA Cup adventure will continue for Brighton after a third round over Championship rivals Brentford to kick-off Chris Hughton’s spell as our new manager with a win.

A replay at the Amex Stadium was looking likely but two late, late Brighton goals saw us through to a two-nil win at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon.

When you don’t take your chances your ‘the architects of your own downfall’, as they say, and this applied to Brentford this weekend as they had plenty of chances to have been well out of sight before we made the breakthrough.

Gray, the main threat for Brentford this season, missed at least a hat-trick of great chances, with Stockdale also making some saves.

In the second half we came back into the came but with the replay looking more and more ominous Dunk (88) scored his latest goal of a productive season as he headed home a March cross to put us ahead.

Two-minutes from time with the returning O’Grady (90+3) secured the win when he, maybe he’ll have a future with Brighton after all, scored the goal he warranted as he finished when set up by Halford to book our place in round four.
