Huddersfield   7 - 1   Brighton

Huddersfield took full advantage after Brighton had their goalkeeper sent off.

Antony Kay headed Huddersfield ahead but Liam Dickinson's shot levelled, only for Peter Clarke's close-range finish to restore the home side's lead.

Lee Novak scored from the spot after he was fouled by Michel Kuipers, who was sent off, then substitute keeper Graeme Smith saved Jordan Rhodes' penalty.

Rhodes set up Gary Roberts, Daniel Drinkwater hit home and Theo Robinson's late double completed the rout.


Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"In the summer period I felt there were a lot of times last season when we created numerous opportunities but didn't have the strikers who have that natural instinct of being in the penalty area to score goals, but we've got that in abundance now.

"He (Danny Drinkwater) is class isn't he - that's why he's at Manchester United.

"When I went to watch him for the first time with Terry McDermott, after ten minutes we both turned to each other and said 'We've got to get him'".

Brighton manager Russell Slade told BBC Sussex:

"It was a horrendous night for me as a manager, for the team and for the club.

"I didn't see that coming and can only apologise. By far the worst night I've had in football. I was disappointed with most of the goals we conceded.

"But you've got to give them some credit. What a class act they are."
