  2. Post update

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Brighton boss Chris Hughton told Sky Sports:

    "We're all realistic and at 10 men you would settle for 1-1.

    "We've got that bit of spirit and quality and today we've shown that.

    On Anthony Knockaert: "He's been excellent for us with goals and assists after a difficult time. At this stage of the season 10 goals is a great return for a wide player."

  3. That winning feeling

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Brighton celebrate

    The joy and emotion at full-time for the Brighton team.

    Can results like this take them back to the top flight?

  4. 'What a man to have'

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Brighton goalkeeper David Stockdale told Sky Sports: 

    "We're lucky to keep him (Knockaert) to be honest.

    "To have a magician like him you know you've got something special on your hands. What a man to have in your team."

    On the penalty save: "It didn't go in, that's all that matters."

  5. Post update

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Glenn Murray

    Here's the penalty incident in pictorial form.

    Glenn Loovens' shot was a very powerful one, but Glenn Murray can't really have many complaints about the award of a penalty.

    Thankfully for him, his team went onto win the game.

  6. Post update

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Brighton winger Anthony Knockaert told Sky Sports: 

    "I think it was important to come back to winning ways after last week.

    "To come back with 10 men and win the game is a great performance and we're lucky to have a keeper like David Stockdale."

  7. 'Brighton showed character'

    FT: Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Matthew Upson

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    A fantastic result for Brighton. What a great win, under the pressure they were under with a man down. All of a sudden, the tide turned with quality and work rate.

    They've shown the character you need to get promoted out of this league.

  8. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    A valuable, hard earned three points for Chris Hughton's Brighton despite spending a large chunk of the second-half with 10 men.

    Anthony Knockaert's two goals will earn him the headlines but David Stockdale's penalty save and then follow-up stop deserves as much credit.

    The Seagulls go top of the Championship, Sheffield Wednesday stay sixth.

  9. RED CARD - Sam Hutchinson

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    A second yellow card for Sam Hutchinson and Sheffield Wednesday will end this game with nine men on the pitch.

  10. Post update

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Another corner for Sheffield Wednesday and up comes the goalkeeper...

  11. Post update

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Barry Bannan's long ball causes some distress in the Brighton defence but as it falls to Callum McManaman, he drills it over.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Anthony Knockaert's two goals are sending Brighton to the top of the league.

    He takes his time in that "jogging but I'm really walking" style and is replaced by Jiri Skalak.

  13. Post update

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Adam Reach with another driving run down the left but this time it comes to nothing.

    Brighton looking to break at every opportunity.

    Five minutes of injury-time.

  14. RED CARD - Steve Fletcher

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    I spoke about the tension and it boils over after a Brighton attack.

    Steven Fletcher has afters following a challenge from Dale Stephens and leans his head into the Brighton man and is dismissed.

    David Stockdale is also shown a yellow card by the referee. It's 10 v 10 now.

  15. Post update

    Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    We spoke about their recent spurt of late goals and Sheffield Wednesday could really do with another now. 

    Black shirts streaming forward.

  16. GOAL - Brighton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Anthony Knockaert

    May I just refer you to the entry on 80 minutes...

    Sebastien Pocognoli delivers another perfect cross from the left and Anthony Knockaert stretches at the back stick to turn home.

    His 10th goal of the season and the Seagulls are heading to the top of the Championship.

  17. Post update

    Brighton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    A bit of niggle in the game as we head towards the conclusion.

    Lots of appealing, lots of tension.

    Sebastien Pocognoli's cross very nearly finds the toes of a stretching Tomer Hemed six yards out.

  18. Post update

    Brighton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    If it stays like this, Brighton will remain second but go level on points with leaders Newcastle.

    A point for Sheffield Wednesday moves them to fourth.

    But can either side take three?

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Brighton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    With Anthony Knockaert in your team you always have a chance.

    The Brighton winger's mazy run is ended by Tom Lees who is shown a yellow - nothing comes from the free-kick.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Jamie Murphy off and Solly March on for Brighton, with Steve Sidwell also coming onto the pitch for Oliver Norwood. Fresh legs in the midfield.
