Brighton   2 - 0   Yeovil

Brighton 2-0 Yeovil

Brighton 2-0 Yeovil

Inigo Calderon's spectacular strike sealed Brighton's victory over Yeovil as they stretched their lead at the top of League One to six points.

Glenn Murray headed the home side in front after a teasing cross from Kazenga LuaLua.

Calderon doubled their lead after the break with a rifled shot from outside the area after collecting Marcos Painter's diagonal pass.

Murray went close to scoring a third but was denied by Stephen Henderson.


Brighton boss Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"Teams come here and they change their game completely. I think we are now in a situation that we know that is going to happen. We knew they could not press and defend for 90 minutes.

"It was a matter of time because we are doing what we need to win football games.

"It was a very professional performance. Everyone put something in. It's up to us to stay at the top. We are where we deserve to be. We need to look after ourselves and prove ourselves against Peterborough next week."


Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

"We had some of our better players missing, but the lads that stood in for them gave me everything, I can't fault them on that.

"Unfortunately we just came up a little bit short. After that first goal went in, it could have been a cricket score and we stood up to it - they're top of the table for a reason.

"I thought Ed Upson did very well coming in from the cold, it's tough for players coming in to the team like that.

"We're a very small club, so it has to be put into perspective."
