Sam Baldock scored the only goal as he netted for the third successive match. The victory followed a frustrating 2-2 draw at home to Preston North End on Saturday when the visitors scored an injury-time equaliser.

Albion are once again among the pacesetters in the Championship and currently sit third. The top two positions are occupied by Newcastle and Norwich, who were both relegated from the Premier League last season.

Brighton missed out on promotion only on goal difference last season and are currently three points behind the Toon Army and two adrift of Norwich, who they host in their next home game a week on Saturday.

Prior to that game, the Seagulls travel to lowly Wigan Athletic this Saturday.
