Brighton   4 - 3   Carlisle

Brighton 4-3 Carlisle

Brighton 4-3 Carlisle

Liam Bridcutt's injury-time winner earned all three points for League One leaders Brighton against Carlisle.

Carlisle's Tom Taiwo opened the scoring from the edge of the area before Glenn Murray was put through to level.

Albion's Ashley Barnes smashed home a powerful angled shot but Ben Marshall equalised from just outside the area.

Barnes then scored with the outside of his foot and Harry Arter netted for the visitors from close range in injury time before Bridcutt's 20-yard winner.

Albion came into the game four points clear, having not lost at home in the league since Carlisle beat them in April 2010.

But they got off to a disastrous start when they failed to clear James Berrett's corner and Taiwo was on hand to score.

Albion levelled when Murray scored his 17th goal of the season thanks to good work from strike partner Barnes, who then put them 2-1 up when he latched onto Bridcutt's clever pass.

But Marshall levelled following a move involving substitute Francois Zoko and Berrett, before Barnes scored his second via the post after latching onto a ball over the top.

Substitute Arter, on loan from Brighton's title rivals Bournemouth , thought he had rescued a point for Carlisle on his debut in the 92nd minute but midfielder Bridcutt's first goal for the club kept the Seagulls four points ahead of the Cherries.


Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"We've been quite good during the season by not having these kind of games.

"But credit to the team. They kept believing. Maybe another team would have collapsed and conceded another goal. We went for it and, in the end, we won it.

"That is the way you stay top. Six points from the last two games is magnificent. But let's start playing a little bit better or I'll start losing my hair."

Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:

"It was a great game for the neutral but I have got a dressing room on its knees.

"They have put in a tremendous shift battled back, got ourselves in front, battled back twice and we think we have done enough to nick a point and they hit a world class strike in the last minute.

"And we got nothing out of a game where you think our determination maybe deserved something."
