Brighton’s Championship season continued with a win against Brentford at the Amex Stadium on Friday.

The bid for automatic promotion was very much on after Brighton ran out convincing three-nil winners over Brentford, with Middlesbrough drawing with Blackburn we know Albion are two-points off second.

Ahead of the half hour Anthony Knockaert put Brighton ahead, his first goal for Albion since his recent arrival from Standard Liege that had already seen some positive displays with a goal threatened more than once, finishing past Brentford ‘keeper David Button.

Two-minutes before half time it was two when Tomer Hemed, who hadn’t managed a goal in pushing two-months, headed in a cross from Beram Kayal to give Brighton some breathing space.

It was a game already won but Jamie Murphy added a third in injury-time at the end of a counter-attack move for Albion’s biggest win of the season!

The first half had also seen Bruno denied a goal when he effort deflected off Brentford defender Harlee Dean and onto the crossbar that after Knockaert could, in fact should have scored early on but he failed to hit the target.

These were the other results.
