Football: Coca Cola CHAMPIONSHIP - TAKE HART SEAGULLS; ALL THE TOP ACTION ALL THE GOALS Gary's Winner Eases Drop Fears


Byline: Andy ARLIDGE

Brighton 2

Leeds 1

A DRAMATIC late goal from Gary Hart ended Brighton's run of four straight defeats as the Seagulls were rewarded for a gutsy performance at Withdean.

The issue was settled 10 minutes from time with a well-taken shot into the roof of the net after Matthew Kilgallon fatally allowed the ball to run and Paul Reid found Hart.

Relegation-threatened Brighton had made a dream start when versatile Australian Reid scored on ten minutes with a low shot moments after Dean Hammond had headed against the post.

Promotion-chasing Leeds equalised seven minutes before the break with a controversial penalty from Robbie Blake after Eddie Lewis appeared to take a dive.

Reid looked to be harshly penalised by referee Andy D'Urso as he was doing little more than shielding the ball from Lewis.

Brighton boss Mark McGhee, desperate to sign someone to provide the goals which have been missing all season, experimented with a new partnership up front as the Seagulls went in search of their first win since Boxing Day.

Frenchman Seb Carole led the line with the long-serving Hart . Brighton's six recognised front men have collectively managed only 10 goals in the league.

McGhee also gave a home debut to 18-year-old Joel Lynch, while recalling big Dutch keeper Michel Kuipers.

The Seagulls were quickly pushed on to the back foot and American Lewis forced Kuipers to hold his deflected shot at the near post.

Leeds forced three corners inside the first five minutes. Central defender Paul Butler had an opportunity to press home their early lively play but headed wastefully wide from eight yards.

Brighton hit back and were unlucky when Hammond thudded a header against the post.

The Seagulls broke the deadlock with a nicely taken goal from Reid, who started the game in his favoured midfield position.

Along ball over the top caused Leeds problems and Hart released Alex Frutos. The Frenchman promptly beat defender Gary Kelly before setting up Reid, who scored with a low angled shot from ten yards.
