Brighton’s Championship season continued with another win at the Amex Stadium against Blackburn on Saturday.

A third win from four-matches in the league to kick off the season from Brighton in this one-nil win took Albion up to the dizzy heights of second in the Championship!

Match Highlight: Click Here

Kick-off in this game at the Amex Stadium was delayed due to the tragic plane crash at the Shoreham Airshow and ALL of our thoughts are with those tragically killed in this and those impacted by it….

Stockdale was forced into saved to keep out Blackburn duo Koita and Conway to make sure the scores remained level with the away side starting well.

Those misses, or would you call them saves, became all the more important when Baldock’s pass to LuaLua (35) saw him fire into the top corner past for his latest goal in a so far productive season on that score before the break.

Again Stockdale saved, keeping Albion ahead, when he denied former England U21 Delfouneso striker when he got away with the win assured when Blackburn defender Duffy headed over from just six-yards out at the death.
Shoreham Airshow statement
Albion issued a statement following the Air Show crash on Saturday too, this was put out on the Official Website and read.

The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club are with those whose family and friends were killed or injured at the Shoreham Air Show crash yesterday afternoon.

Club chairman Tony Bloom said, “We are all shocked by the devastating events of yesterday afternoon. Our sincerest condolences and deepest sympathies go out to those people who’ve lost loved ones in this very tragic accident.'”

As a mark of respect to those victims of the crash, the club has postponed tomorrow’s under-21 match against Newcastle United, scheduled to take place at the club’s training ground.
