Brighton & Hove Albion won at home tonight against Derby County by 3-0 after being 2-0 up at half time and so draw level on points with newcastle with 77 points from 37 games played.
Newcastle will play their game tomorrow afternoon and will now be top whatever happens but we need to wing the game so that Brighton do not gain on us.
So former manager Steve McClaren wasn’t able to help us out tonight.
Brighton manager Chris Hughton
The goals came from Anthony Knockaert after just 5 minutes, Sam Baldock after 43 minutes and striker Glenn Murray with 12 minutes to go.
That was Derby’s 5th defeat in the last 9 games where they have picked up just 6 points.
