Brighton   0 - 1   Millwall

Brighton 0-1 Millwall

Brighton 0-1 Millwall

Millwall retained their hold on sixth place as Steve Morison's second-half strike put Brighton to the sword.

Morison sealed the points just after the break when he dispossessed defender Adam Virgo before rounding Michel Kuipers to slot home.

Nicky Forster fired just over for Brighton, while Glenn Murray struck a post and Tommy Elphick saw a late header cleared off the line.

Lions forward Shaun Batt was twice thwarted by Seagulls keeper Kuipers.


Millwall boss Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"It wasn't for the faint-hearted today that's for sure, the players were on a very difficult pitch and our supporters came to the Withdean which has no cover and was very cold.

"It was a real team effort between the players and supporters."

"It was a very well taken goal from Steve Morison and it finishes off what is an excellent week for us."

Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:

"It's difficult to analyse because there was nothing in the game. Unfortunately we made a mistake, conceded a goal and afterwards it was another day chasing the game.

"Sometimes it happens as it happens today. It's not a problem. We are a team and we take it all together."
