Brighton Get Stoppage Time Winner At Birmingham


Brighton were 1-0 down at Birmingham tonight after 81 minutes with a goal on 52 minutes from Jutkiewic.

But then Knockaert equalized on 82 minutes and then five minutes into stoppage time Glenn Murray got the winner and all 3 points to remain one point behind Newcastle in second place.

That was the first game in charge for new Birmingham City manager Gianfranco Zola,

In other games today Derby County’s seven game winning streak and five successive clean sheets came to an end when they drew 2-2 at Fulham.

Chris Hughton – winner at the death at Birmingham

So here’s where we stand at the top of the Championship tonight.

2Brighton463493
3Reading46485
4Sheffield Wednesday461581
5Huddersfield46-281
6Fulham462880

And in case you were thinking how we compared to Chris’ side of seven years ago here are the stats after 22 games – we are doing better because of a slightly better goal difference.

    Brighton’s result says a lot about Hughton and his ability to inspire his players.

    I just threw it out there….

    I know we were looking at him and I wold think he would like to play for us (no disrespect to Hoots or Brighton)

    I suppose you never know who Rafa is looking at, I hear Gareth Bale was house hunting near The Pavilion in Backworth…..

    Catchy,
    There is a very good reason why I have no respect for your views on Newcastle United, you blamed everything on Alan Pardew, even not finishing fourth, you couldn’t see that finishing fifth was an achievement, you backed ya man Mclaren to such an extent that you disappeared when he proved to be an abject failure.

    Oh aye they fluffed it big time when they got to St James, occasion clearly got to them imo. As for at their place I hope we will win but I’d say it’ll be a draw

    Bambam
    Don’t get me wrong I like Knockeart he looks very good and works very hard but they won’t let him go this season. And he did ask to leave when we reportedly bid for him this past summer but Brighton said no (and fair play to them for it)

    Well unless you’re going to celebrate the Mickey mouse trophy like it’s the European cup you shouldn’t really give a shite about Brighton. It’s the third place team we should be concerned about.

    Jail – don’t forget that Catchy said that he was stopping watching the games when we were on that losing streak a while back (may have been over a year ago, but I never forgot him saying that). I’ve labeled him a fair weather supporter ever since. As far as I’m concerned you don’t pick and choose when to support the Toon, you do it through thick and thin.

    lmao,

    jail , iv never listened to you, i don’t think you have ever said anything relevant, fair enough you hate Ashley, but you will never say he is doing something right, your entrenched in the thought the man is pure evil and that no good can come from him.
    I stand by everything i ever said about Pardew, the guy flukes 5th place and it wasn’t 4th i was gutted about , it was 3rd, if 5th was the worst you could get why settle for it, which is what he did, the man bottled it just as only him the winner knows how.
    shteve is a good coach, and while i think the football under him was miles better , football is a results game, and he just couldn’t buy a result. and deservedly had to go, he should have gone sooner. but to be fair to him, he has got derby flying again.

    Chancel, go and find where i said that. what i said was i quite happily see us get relegated if it meant P45 would be sacked.

    Jail another thing

    football is a confidence game, my whole argument was based on 2 things, no game plan, he relied on wonder goals from good players. and insistence on playing players out of position resulting if player form just going backwards.

    your argument was it was al Ashley’s fault and until he went we would just go down down down. so right now we are in the championship and i don’t hear anyone talking about ashley,

    In one of tomorrow’s papers.

    Rafa Benitez urges Aleksandar Mitrovic to stay and fire Newcastle to promotion despite Swansea interest

    The Serb is a firm favourite on Tyneside but is used in a rotation system at Newcastle and Swansea are ready to offer £15m when the window reopens next month

    There’s no way he will go to swans, besides swans need more than him to get out of trouble.
