Brighton’s Capital One Cup run is over after a defeat at the Bescot, or is it the Banks’s Stadium, against Walsall on Tuesday.

It was quite literally a case of Brighton ‘paying the penalty’ as a missed spot kick from O’Grady prevented Albion from retaking the lead, which Forster-Caskey had given the Seagulls before Lalkovic drew Walsall level.

Henry’s late winner sent the Saddlers into round three with a two-one upset win!

As the first half drew to a close Forster-Caskey was brought down by Downing in the box to give Brighton a first penalty of the night. Forster-Caskey (39) himself stepped up to convert the penalty to put Albion into a half time lead.

This was retained until Lalkovic scored for Walsall to level things up at the midway point of the second half, however another penalty was awarded for Brighton as the lead for a second time on the night was chase.

O’Grady, who hasn’t scored too many in a so far disappointing spell with Albion really, fired high over the bar!

That missed proved most costly for Albion as, unlike in the last round against Southend when a late winner came, it was Walsall that completed a comeback to advance into a meeting with holders Chelsea when Henry (86) finished off a Sawyers cross four-minutes from time.
