Brighton secured a 2-0 win over Leeds in the Championship on Friday.
Brighton‘s unbeaten run was extended to 14 games when we saw off a 10-man Leeds side at the Amex Stadium. Albion had moved to the top of the table ahead of Newcastle. However, Rafa Benitez’s side reclaimed this when they beat Birmingham on Saturday.
When Kalvin Phillips handled on the goalline Brighton were awarded a penalty and the midfielder a red card. Glenn Murray converted the resulting spot kick with his 12th league goal of the season to have Albion ahead midway through the first half.
A foul on Lewis Dunk brought Brighton a chance to seal the points late on when another penalty was awarded. Tomer Hemed took responsibility to round off a 2-0 win against a Leeds side that had won their previous five.
Chris Hughton spoke of his ‘delight’ at the win after the game. However, the Brighton boss admitted he wished the second goal had come soon.
He was quoted by the BBC when speaking post-match as saying.
‘I am delighted with the result and the performance. The only negative was that there was too big a gap between the first goal and the second. Anything can happen and in that period we didn’t create more opportunities.’
Hughton added we’ve not always been at our best recently but the main thing is the results keep coming.
‘In the last four or five games we have not been at our best but we have kept picking up results.’
