Southampton   1 - 3   Brighton

Southampton v Brighton

Southampton 1-3 Brighton

Brighton celebrate their first goal at St Mary's
Glenn Murray celebrates his opening strike with team-mate Gary Dicker

New Brighton manager Gus Poyet enjoyed a winning start to his reign as the Seagulls won at in-form Southampton.

The visitors got off to a flier when Glenn Murray superbly volleyed them in front with 16 minutes gone and he doubled the lead from close range.

Saints got one back when Adam Lallana was brought down by Andrew Whing and Rickie Lambert slammed in the penalty.

But Brighton wrapped it up when they launched a counter-attack and Andrew Crofts side-footed in from 15 yards.

Saints had not lost in the league since September, but their defence looked shaky from the start and Murray, who scored twice last week at Wycombe, took full advantage.

His first goal showcased great technique from a Dean Cox cross, while his second came after the striker's initial shot had been tipped on to the post by Kelvin Davis.

Nicky Forster dragged wide as Saints rocked, but Lambert almost scored at the other end when Michel Kuipers pushed his free-kick around the post.

After Lambert's spot-kick reduced the arrears David Connolly flashed a shot narrowly wide, but Brighton were not to be denied and Crofts wrapped it up by drilling in from Liam Dickinson's pass.


Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:

"Brighton came out fired up and we never responded.

"I make no excuses for us. Brighton had loads of chances, showed plenty of passion and we gave them too much room.

"We'll make sure we don't get caught like that in future."
