  1. Coming up this weekend

    That's it for this evening, but don't worry - tonight's match was just the start of our EFL coverage this weekend.

    Tomorrow we'll have our regular live text covering all the Championship games, along with updates from League One and League Two.

    Newcastle will look to go back to the top of the table by beating Birmingham before the late kick-off features a Lancashire derby between Preston and Blackburn.

    Then on Sunday, we'll have commentary on the East Midlands derby between Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

    Thanks for joining me. Until next time, goodbye.

  2. Recap: Albion go top of the Championship

    FT: Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Glenn Murray

    Brighton moved top of the Championship and extended their unbeaten league run to 14 games with a win against 10-man Leeds United.

    Glenn Murray put the Seagulls in front from the penalty spot after Kalvin Phillips was sent off for handling on the line midway through the first half.

    The hosts dominated but only made sure of victory through Tomer Hemed's late penalty after Lewis Dunk was fouled.

    Leeds had no shots on target, rarely troubling the division's best defence.

  5. FT: Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Quote Message: We are not even looking at the league table. It's nothing really. The sending off made the game harder as they kept their shape, were resolute and hard to break down. We will keep half an eye on other results but we are focusing on ourselves. from Sam Baldock Brighton striker on Sky Sports

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Tomer Hemed celebrates Brighton goal

    The full time whistle goes, and the three points takes Brighton to the top of the Championship table.

    The Seagulls are two points ahead of Newcastle, and eight clear of third-placed Reading.

    Kalvin Phillips' red card midway through the first half changed the game, as Brighton went ahead through Glenn Murray and had a numberical advantage.

    Tomer Hemed's late penalty sealed the result for Chris Hughton's side.

  7. Post update

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Brighton have a late panic from a free-kick, as the ball looks like it will drop to a yellow shirt inside the six-yard box but the hosts clear the danger.

  8. Post update

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Albion centre-back Lewis Dunk has to be smart to get across and concede a corner after Kemar Roofe brought the ball down in the area.

    Stuart Dallas' resulting delivery is headed wide by Chris Wood at the far post.

    There will not be late drama, by the look of it.

  9. Post update

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Brighton sub Tomer Hemed drags a shot wide from just outside the area as he looks to double his personal tally.

    We are into four minutes of added time on the south coast.


    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Brighton make their final change, as Jiri Skalak replaces Anthony Knockaert on the wing.

    Liam Cooper replaces Pontus Jansson at the back for Leeds after the Swede picked up and injury.

    The three points are in the bag at the Amex Stadium, barring an extraordinary comeback by the visitors.

  11. Post update

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    That is Tomer Hemed's third league goal of the season, and his first since the 1-0 win at Burton in mid-September.

    All his Championship goals this season have come from the penalty spot.

  12. GOAL (Hemed)

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    He's only been on the pitch about five minutes, but Tomer Hemed doubles Brighton's lead.

    The Israel striker stutters in his run-up and sends Rob Green the wrong way, stroking the ball into the right hand side of the net.

    Brighton are heading to the top of the Championship.

    Tomer Hemed

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    From the resulting free-kick, Kyle Bartley tugs down Lewis Dunk at the back post, and Albion have their second penalty of the evening.

  14. YELLOW CARD (Bartley)

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Brighton keeper David Stockdale rushes off his line to gather a ball looking for Chris Wood.

    Stockdale distributes quickly, and finds Tomer Hemed.

    The Israel striker turns and is brought down by Kyle Bartley about 30 yards out on the left.

    The Leeds centre-back gets yellow for that one.

  15. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Shane Duffy gets on the end of Anthony Knockaert's ball in, but the Irish centre-back can only send his header straight at Leeds keeper Rob Green.

    Ten minutes remain at the Amex and Brighton aren't sure of victory yet.

  16. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Brighton win a free-kick midway inside the Leeds half after Ronaldo Vieira was late on Dale Stephens.

    The youngster escapes a booking.


    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Brighton boss Chris Hughton makes his second change, as goalscorer Glenn Murray is replaced by Tomer Hemed up front.

  19. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Stuart Dallas sets up what looks like it could be a threatening attack for the visitors, but the ball won't break to a yellow shirt in the box, or just outside it.

    Brighton manage to clear but are not looking totally convincing against the 10 men.

    Leeds still haven't had a shot on target.

  20. Post update

    Brighton 1-0 Leeds

    Anthony Knockaert swings a ball deep into the Leeds area but it goes out at the far post.

    Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor had his hands around Dale Stephens, but it wasn't worthy of a penalty by any stretch of the imagination - the ball was nowhere near them.
