Brighton went back to the top of the Championship tonight with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday at home after an amazing game.
The score was 1-1 at half time with a goal from Knockaert after 34 minutes and then an own goal from Lewis Dunk just before half time.
And then after 64 minutes Glenn Murray was sent off after he intentionally stopped Loovens’ shot going into the net with his hand.
He was given a red card and Sheffield Wednesday were awarded a penalty, but then goalkeeper Stockdale saved the penalty kick and the follow up – a stunning double save by the Brighton goalkeeper.

And then amazingly after 85 minutes it was Anthony Knockaert who scored his second goal for 10 man Brighton to put the home team ahead.
Sheffield Wednesday then went all out for the equalizer and in a melee that followed they had former Sunderland striker Fletcher sent off after 88 minutes.
And then after six minutes of stoppage time it was Sam Hutchinson was sent off for a poor challenge on March and Wednesday were down to 9 men.
The final whistle was blown and somehow Broughton had got the win – their 17th of the season and go 2 points ahead of Newcastle in the Championship with both clubs having played 26 games.
Newcastle will now need to beat Rotherham tomorrow to go back to top of the league table.
This was a gutsy win for Chris Hughton’s side.
