Sheffield Wednesday 1 Brighton 0 (Report)

Another opportunity of closing the gap on the play off places was lost as Brighton suffered a second successive defeat after an injury time winner from Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday.

David Rodriguez has spoken about his desire to stay with Albion beyond his summer contract and if he'd scored his first goal for us his chances would have been greatly improved by his header from Jake Forster-Caskey's corner hit the bar.

Sheffield Wednesday had threatened but we were in control really with Will Buckley guilty of failing to find a final ball more than once, which if he had would have surely led to an Albion goal.

Albion were limiting Sheffield Wednesday's chances but we couldn't breakthrough either.

Buckley missed the best chance of the night early in the second half, given the goalscoring form he's been in you would have backed the winger to score when put clean through by Forster-Caskey. With the offside trap beaten and just Chris Kirkland to beat his finish was straight at the former England goalkeeper who was barely troubled.

Another Albion break almost brought us a goal but Jesse Lingard's effort was saved by Kirkland after he'd cut in from the wing before hitting his powerful effort.

The limited threat that Sheffield Wednesday offered did give us a reminder of how quickly they could score with Benik Afobe being denied by Tomasz Kuszczak with Liam Palmer putting his follow up effort over the bar.

Kuszczak had to save again getting towards the final 10 minutes from Chris Maguire.

Sheffield Wednesday had the final word though as Leon Best won it for them in injury time. The loanee striker cut in from the left before thumping past Kuszczak to give the home side a fourth successive home win and leave us missing an opportunity when promotion rivals also slipped up.

The fact that we've never won at Hillsborough was extended, not with a point as looked likely but a defeat but luckily we've not lost any ground on the top six but could have made some.
