Ipswich v Brighton

Ipswich 3 - 1 Brighton

Michael Chopra scored twice as Ipswich came from behind to defeat Brighton.

Former Spain and Valencia winger Vicente Rodriguez opened his account for the Seagulls when he curled in a shot shortly after the restart.

Chopra equalised from 25 yards before centre-back Ibrahima Sonko scored his first goal for Ipswich when he headed in from Jimmy Bullard's corner.

Town made sure of the points when striker Chopra was again afforded too much time and finished from 12 yards.

The former Newcastle forward also went close when he volleyed Carlos Edwards' cross goalwards and forced a great reflex save from Casper Ankergren.

Midfielder Lee Bowyer, twice, Grant Leadbitter and Keith Andrews also tried their luck from long range.

At the other end, Ashley Barnes should have done better for Brighton with a header from 12 yards.

The Suffolk club have taken 10 points from a possible 12 in their last four Championship matches, coming after losing four of their opening six.

For Brighton it was a third defeat from their last four Championship games - and the third game running in which they have conceded three goals.
