Brighton Review vs Huddersfield Town (A): Seagulls get back to winning ways

Brighton got back to winnings ways with a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s stadium.

Huddersfield took the lead a minute in, when Bruno’s clearance caught the win and swirled back towards goal and Mathias Jorgensen rose above Matthew Ryan to head home.

The Terriers were then dealt a huge blow in the 32nd minute, when Steve Mounie was given a straight red card for a raking tackle on Yves Bissouma Shin.

Brighton levelled the game up on the stroke of half time when Solly March’s inswinging cross was met by Shane Duffy and his headed flew into the top right corner of the net.

The Seagulls dominated the second half and took the lead in the 69th minute, when another of March’s inswinging crosses was headed in by Florin Andone for his first goal for Albion and what a vital one it was.

The red card changed the game

One thing was for certain the red card changed the game, as Huddersfield were in control of the game and looked certain to go on and win the game.

However, with Mounie challenge which was a clumsy one to make, it gave Albion belief they could back into the game.

Brighton certainly did back into the game and dominated the game and enjoyed the majority of the ball for the rest of the game and comfortably control the game to get the get the three points.

Huddersfield will be disappointed to lose the game and to be costed the game by a challenge that didn’t need to be made like that.

Andone shone on his full debut

One player who caught the eye for Brighton was Andone. He made in full Premier League debut and took the place of top goalscorer Murray, who has been in fine form this season.

Andone certainly grabbed the opportunity with both hands, he was a handful for the Huddersfield defence to deal with.

This was due to his pace, hold-up play and his reaction to the ball in the box. Andone deserved a goal and in the 69th minute he got it when he made a terrific run across the front post and headed the ball into the top right corner.

This got Andone up and running in terms of goals for Brighton and what a way to do it scoring the winning goal away from home, to earn Brighton only their second win on the road this season.

Palace up next

Brighton will now face arch rivals Crystal Palace on Tuesday night, in what promises to be a feisty and entertaining event.
