Brighton's Spanish tour started with us running out 4-0 winners against Partick Thistle in a game played at the Pinatar Arena on Saturday.
Albion survived an early worry from Ryan Stevenson before Nzuzi Toko almost showed us his first glimpses of what he's capable of but his effort was dragged wide. Scott Fox made the first save of note when he turned Craig Mackail-Smith's volley, from Kemy Agustien's cross, wide.
Patrick almost went ahead again when Casper Ankergren was forced to turn a Kallum Higginbotham cross onto the bar, the rebound coming to Christie Elliott but Jake Forster-Caskey showed another of the reasons why he's got a new long term contract as he threw himself in front of the effort to keep the ball out.
Albion finally broke through when Solly March picked out Mackail-Smith, the striker getting onto his ball over the top to show his deadly best as he fired home then Gordon Greer headed home a Forster-Caskey corner just before the break to double our lead.
Sami Hyypia made no fewer than six changes at half time, nine in total, with Rohan Ince and March close to adding further goals.
Charlie Harris and Shamir Fenelon were among those that came on at half time with Fenelon heading home a cross from Harris, who then scored himself with a boomer from 25 yards that went in off the bar.
Worryingly though Lewis Dunk had to limp off before full time.
A minor injury to Kaz LuaLua meant that he had to miss the game with it also reported that Leo Ulloa's absence was again due to a minor injury. I'm being too cynical perhaps but you could also read this as being a move to Leicester City could soon be happening?
