Referee:

Brighton's Championship season continued with another win at the Amex Stadium against Blackburn on Saturday.

A third win from four-matches in the league to kick off the season from Brighton in this one-nil win took Albion up to the dizzy heights of second in the Championship!

Match Highlight: Click Here

Kick-off in this game at the Amex Stadium was delayed due to the tragic plane crash at the Shoreham Airshow and ALL of our thoughts are with those tragically killed in this and those impacted by it....

Stockdale was forced into saved to keep out Blackburn duo Koita and Conway to make sure the scores remained level with the away side starting well.

Those misses, or would you call them saves, became all the more important when Baldock's pass to LuaLua (35) saw him fire into the top corner past for his latest goal in a so far productive season on that score before the break.

Again Stockdale saved, keeping Albion ahead, when he denied former England U21 Delfouneso striker when he got away with the win assured when Blackburn defender Duffy headed over from just six-yards out at the death.
