Stunning Comeback Keeps Albion Top!

3 - 2
Charlton Athletic

Amex Stadium


Attendance: 24,587


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

Having been two-down Albion secured a stunning comeback to win three-two!

Charlton couldn't have made a better start with Ademola Lookman (2) and then Reza Ghoochannejhad (5) having the Addicks two-up in the opening five-minutes to leave Brighton stunned! And also with it all to do!

Man United loanee James Wilson (50) scored his first Brighton goal early in the second half with Charlton then reduced to 10-men when Patrick Bauer was sent off with half an hour to play.

Albion took advantage of the man advantage to draw level when Bobby Zamora (83) scored from close range in the final 10-minutes then just a couple of minutes later, having come off the bench, Tomer Hemed (85) headed a winner five-minutes from time to complete the comeback!

If it hadn't been for David Stockdale, at two-nil, when he saved from Ghoochannejhad it could have been game over with the red card, at two-one to Charlton, also making a big difference.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 5th December 2015
Birmingham 0-2 Huddersfield
Bolton 2-3 Cardiff
Brentford 2-0 MK Dons

Bristol City 0-2 Blackburn
Burnley 0-2 Preston
Leeds 2-1 Hull
Nottm Forest 3-0 Fulham
Rotherham 1-2 Wolves

Sunday 6th December 2015
Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 Derby

Looking at these results the stand out ones (aside from the Albion one) have to be the wins for Huddersfield and Preston.

A first win for Huddersfield under new boss David Wagner was secured at St Andrew's when Town beat Birmingham, who dropped out of the top six, two-nil to themselves move out of the Championship relegation zone.

Burnley's unbeaten run was ended by Lancashire rivals Preston with the Lilywhites, causing what must be viewed as a surprise win, earning the points against the Clarets with them going away from Turf Moor with a two-nil win.
