Brighton   0 - 1   Swindon

Brighton 0-1 Swindon

Charlie Austin's 14th goal of the season revived Swindon's promotion bid and ended Brighton's five-match unbeaten run.

The visitors lost goalkeeper David Lucas to a leg injury early on and Andrew Crofts almost took advantage with a low shot just wide of the post.

Glenn Murray saw a header cleared off the line and had a strong penalty shout rejected as Brighton piled on pressure.

But when Brighton failed to clear Mark Marshall's cross Austin found the net.


Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:

"Unfortunately we didn't hit the target enough today. We had great opportunities to hit the target and we missed it completely. When you have your moments in the game, you have to score.

"They are in the promotion places because they've been organised, they've been good and they've been scoring goals when they needed to."
