Port Vale 0-1 Brighton

Paul Watson's spectacular winner put the seal on Brighton's championship-winning celebrations as they beat Port Vale in a carnival atmosphere at Vale Park.

More than 4,000 travelling fans were in good voice throughout and particularly after Watson's 72nd-minute effort.

There appeared little danger when the full-back prepared to take a free-kick from the right flank, but he bent a superb 25-yard shot high inside the far post.

Vale were reduced to 10 men in the 34th minute when Stephen Brooker was red-carded for an over-the-top challenge on Richard Carpenter.


Port Vale: Goodlad, Walsh, Carragher, Burton, Ingram, Cummins, McClare, Brisco, Bridge-Wilkinson, McPhee, Brooker. Subs: Delaney, Burns, Birchall, Paynter, Byrne.

Brighton: Packham, Watson, Mayo, Morgan, Cullip, Carpenter, Oatway, Brooker, Nathan Jones, Gray, Zamora. Subs: Rogers, Hadland, Lee, Pethick, Webb.

Referee: M Ryan (Preston)
