Plymouth   0 - 2   Brighton

Highlights - Plymouth 0-2 Brighton

Plymouth 0-2 Brighton

Brighton moved into second place in League One with a comfortable win at Plymouth Argyle.

The Seagulls' opener came from midfielder Tommy Elphick, who nodded in Elliott Bennett's near-post free-kick.

Brighton doubled their lead through striker Ashley Barnes, who steered Bennett's cut-back past Pilgrims keeper Romain Larrieu.

Plymouth had chances to pull one back, most notably through Rory Patterson, whose 25-yard free kick went just wide.


Plymouth Argyle manager Peter Reid told BBC Radio Devon:
"Brighton passed the ball well, their system was good and we were chasing shadows.

"We changed in the second half and it was better, we had men competing and tactically we got it right, but it was too late by then.

"Good teams are consistent and we're not consistent at the moment.

Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"We wanted to score another goal to be top for a few days.

"The main thing was the victory and a clean sheet again. If you build on clean sheets you will win many, many games, and we were good in front of goal in the first half.

"It was very difficult in the second half. They really pushed us back, pressed us, and didn't let us play. Overall, I don't think there was a better first half than the one we played today."
