AFCB v BHAFC (19/9/17) | EFL Cup 3rd Round Match Review

Brighton & Hove Albion exited the Carabao Cup at the third round stage after a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth, in an otherwise defensively resolute display at the Vitality Stadium.

Chris Hughton made ten changes to the side that lost 2-1 to the Cherries the previous Friday, as Dessie Hutchinson was handed his senior debut and Ezequiel Schelotto also made his first appearance. Jose Izquierdo had the first chance of the game when he cut inside from the left and forced a fine save from Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc. Lys Mousset and Brad Smith both had early chances for the hosts, but neither shot caused Tim Krul too much concern in the Albion goal. Mousset had another opportunity to break the deadlock early on following a sweeping move, but his attempt went over. Bournemouth continued to look lively and pressed forward once again through Jordon Ibe, however the former Liverpool man’s strike sailed harmlessly over the crossbar. Albion then had a great chance to go in front when Jiri Skalak’s low, driven strike was palmed away by Boruc into the path of Jamie Murphy, who agonisingly fired wide from inside the six-yard box. Izquierdo made another run in from the right flank and saw his strike flash across the face of goal. Some brilliant defending from Connor Goldson kept Bournemouth at bay moments later, as his perfectly-time challenge denied Benik Afobe a shot at goal. Krul was called into action just before the break and he made a fine one-handed stop to keep out Junior Stanislas’s shot that was heading for the far corner. The Cherries were denied by the woodwork just seconds after the re-start, as Stanislas hit the post on the follow-up, after Krul’s fine reactions kept out Afobe’s effort. Murphy had his second golden opportunity of the game after capitalising on Steve Cook’s sloppy backpass, but Boruc diverted the shot inches wide with his foot. Stanislas then squandered a brilliant chance to score for the Cherries, but saw his shot go high and wide of the target after he had latched onto Ibe’s ball across the box. Lewis Cook then took aim from the edge of the box, but Krul continued his impressive display with another brilliant save to keep out the midfielder’s effort. The hosts edged closer to making the breakthrough, but Skalak cleared Mousset’s header off the line. Krul was called into action yet again to deny Afobe from inside the box, before Schelotto blocked Marc Pugh’s shot as Albion’s defence stood firm. Ryan Fraser was next to try his luck from distance, but Krul made a comfortable save. Extra time began with the hosts continuing their momentum, as King raced to the byline and teed up Afobe, whose shot flashed across the face of the goal. Bournemouth’s constant pressure ultimately told, however, and the two substitutes, Pugh and Josh King, combined before the latter slotted the ball past Krul from close range. Adam Smith could have doubled Bournemouth’s advantage in the second period of extra time, but shot wide after arriving late in the box. Krul looked to top off a fine performance on his debut with a goal, as he rushed forward in the dying moments to get on the end of a corner, but the Cherries cleared the danger and claimed a place in round four.

AFCB v BHAFC (15/9/17) | Match Review

Brighton & Hove Albion succumbed to their third defeat of the season after losing 2-1 to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, despite a battling performance against their south coast rivals.

Chris Hughton made one change to the side that beat West Bromwich Albion last Saturday, as Liam Rosenior replaced Bruno. Anthony Knockaert had Albion’s first opportunity of the game after he showed some neat skill to cut in from the right-hand side, but saw his subsequent strike go wide of Asmir Begovic’s near post. Bournemouth had a chance to break the deadlock when Joshua King capitalised on a sloppy clearance, but Lewis Dunk was on hand to make a fine defensive block. Marc Pugh then cut inside the Albion defence, but his left-footed strike drifted harmlessly over the bar. Davy Propper surged forward and showed some brilliant skill on the edge of the box, but his delicate chip just went over the bar. Then Jermaine Defoe showed his quality and after getting a brief sight of goal on the edge of the area, his low driven shot sailed inches wide of Mathew Ryan’s left-hand post. Albion had two chances in quick succession to score just after the re-start, as Andrew Surman cleared Shane Duffy’s header off the line, before doing the same with Propper’s shot. Duffy continued to be a threat to the Cherries defence, and his header from another set-piece was glanced on by Dale Stephens and hit the underside of the bar. But the goal which Albion deserved for their attacking endeavour came courtesy of Solly March, after some brilliant play from Knockaert and Pascal Gross. Knockaert set up the German down the right, and his pin-point cross was nodded home by the winger with 55 minutes on the clock. The lead didn’t last long though and it was Surman who brought the Cherries level after he latched onto Jordan Ibe’s back-heel before coolly slotting the ball past Ryan from close range. Ibe could have given the Cherries with lead when he took aim from inside the box, but Dunk made another superb block to deny the former Liverpool man. It was Bournemouth that struck next though, and it was Defoe who showed why he’s part of the Premier League 100 Club with a clinical driven finish beyond Ryan from Ibe’s through ball. Hughton freshened up his attacking ranks with the introduction of Glenn Murray and Jose Izquierdo, and the latter went through on goal, only to be thwarted by Begovic. Liam Rosenior tried to bring Albion back on level terms with a strike from the edge of the box, but it sailed harmlessly over the target. Albion head back to the Dorset coast next Tuesday night, when the two clubs do battle again in the Carabao Cup, before turning their attentions back to the league on Sunday week for the visit of Newcastle United to the Amex.

BHAFC v WBAFC (9/9/17) | Match Review

Brighton & Hove Albion enjoyed their first top-flight win since 1983 after a superb performance against previously undefeated West Bromwich Albion at the Amex. Having waited 34 years for a top-flight goal, Seagulls fans celebrated two in three minutes either side of the break thanks to German midfielder Pascal Gross.

Chris Hughton had named the same starting XI that picked up a point at Watford last time out and Albion were on the front foot from the start, backed by a vociferous full house. Solly March had an early sight of goal but volleyed over. However, he was on target in the 12th minute when Ben Foster spilled his shot from outside the box and Shane Duffy swept it home, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside against the defender. Anthony Knockaert was next to try his luck from distance but Foster got behind his 25-yarder before the visitors threatened for the first time on 22 minutes when Gareth Barry, who started his career in Albion’s youth set-up, shot well over when a free kick broke to him on the edge of the box. Solid and well-organised, West Brom showed why they had started the season so well. Albion needed to be patient to open up spaces and they did so when a good move down the right ended with Dale Stephens clipping his effort over the bar. Maty Ryan was forced into his first save six minutes before the break when he pushed out Barry’s volley but Albion ended the half strongly. Knockaert hit one with his left foot a yard over the target before they deservedly broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time. March worked some space to cross from the left and Gross took a touch before firing low into the right-hand corner from six yards. The Amex erupted and Albion had a precious advantage. Two minutes after the break it was 2-0 – and Gross was again on target. Hemed did superbly to pick him out and, as West Brom’s defence retreated, the midfielder needed no invitation to let fly from 20 yards and his low shot flew past Foster into the bottom left-hand corner. Albion had their tails up and only some tremendous reflexes by Foster to keep out Duffy’s far post header denied them another goal in the 58th minute. Five minutes later, though, it was 3-0. Gross was the creator this time, whipping over a great cross at pace from the left. Hemed cleverly stole in front of his marker and his glancing header beat Foster at the near post. The visitors pushed men forward in an attempt to salvage something with Scotland international Oliver Burke a real danger down their right. They pulled one back in the 77th minute when their two substitutes combined with Burke heading a cross into the path of Morrison, who swept it home from close range, despite Duffy’s efforts to clear it off the line. It made the closing stages more fraught than they should have been for Albion fans and Ryan pulled off a good save in stoppage time to deny Morrison, but on the balance of play Albion richly deserved the three points.

Brighton secured their first point of the Premier League, as they were held to a 0-0 draw away at 10 man Watford.

It was a match where Albion showed plenty of attacking endeavour, but lacked that final cutting edge against a ten-man Watford side that had Miguel Britos sent off in the first half. Chris Hughton made two changes to the starting line-up that lost to Leicester City on Saturday, as Anthony Knockaert and Tomer Hemed replaced Jamie Murphy and Glenn Murray. There was also a place on the bench for new club record signing Jose Izquierdo, who came on to make his Albion debut. Watford had an early chance to break the deadlock when Nathaniel Chalobah’s bullet header was cleared off the line by Lewis Dunk. Down at the other end, Knockaert came agonisingly close to opening the scoring for Albion, but his close-range strike cannoned back off the post. The Hornets were reduced to ten men midway through the half after Britos was shown a straight red card for a dangerous two-footed challenge on Knockaert. Marco Silva responded by bringing on Craig Cathcart for Nordin Amrabat to shore up his defence. Hughton’s men continued their bright start to the game and carved out multiple opportunities. Lewis Dunk was next to come close when his header flashed wide from Pascal Gross’s cross. Solly March then teed up Hemed inside the box, and the Israeli’s stretched effort came off the post. Brighton were getting joy down both flanks, with the March-Hemed combination almost reaping dividends again, but the Israeli could not get on the end of the winger’s cross. Albion pressed forward once again to try and take the lead before the break, but Hornets keeper Heurelho Gomes punched away Knockaert’s delivery. Brighton looked to continue their ascendancy after the break, as Markus Suttner’s first-time ball caused all sorts of problems in the Watford defence, but Kiko Fermenia got to the ball first ahead of Gross. Hemed again threatened to draw first blood in the match, but his first-time effort went inches wide of the right post. Another moment of controversy came shortly before the hour mark when Graham Scott gave an indirect free-kick for a high boot on Knockaert, despite contact having been made. Dunk’s subsequent set piece was blocked. Albion’s dominance continued, and March picked out Knockaert inside the box, but the Frenchman couldn’t beat Gomes with his header back across goal. Knockaert was the key protagonist again, but his low strike towards the bottom corner was pushed away by the Brazilian shot-stopper. Hughton then freshened up his options on the wings with the introduction of Izquierdo, who replaced Knockaert. The Colombian almost made it a debut to remember with a speculative shot that went just wide, but the points were shared in Hertfordshire.

BHAFC v BFC (22/8/17) | EFL Cup 2nd Round Match Review

Brighton recorded their first win of the new season, as the progressed to the 3rd round of the EFL Cup, after a slender 1-0 win against a dogged Barnet side.

As anticipated, boss Chris Hughton made 11 changes to the side beaten by Leicester City on Saturday. The most eye-catching name in the starting line-up was 18-year-old midfielder Jayson Molumby, who was neat and tidy in possession throughout and involved in the goal. Albion predictably dominated possession early on, but their only chance in the opening third of the contest came after Richie Towell and Knockeart had combined nicely in midfield. Anthony Knockeart threaded a pass into the path of Tomer Hemed, but Ricardo Santos did enough to prevent it from testing former Whitehawk goalkeeper Craig Ross. Barnet were quick to funnel men behind the ball when the hosts threatened, but Albion should have scored in the 33rd minute. David Tutonda gave the ball away to Knockeart, who raced into the box and side-stepped a defender to make space but Ross blocked his shot with his left leg. Knockeart was booked for dissent as the teams left the field at the break and James Tilley replaced him at half-time in a double change, which saw Ales Mateju come on for Gaetan Bong to make his senior debut for the Seagulls. And it took just eight minutes for Tilley to make an impact. Skipper Liam Rosenior was found by Molumby’s inch-perfect pass, as he burst into the penalty area and when his shot was blocked, Tilley was on hand to volley it past Ross from ten yards. It was a deserved reward for a purposeful start to the second half by the Seagulls, but Barnet should have levelled three minutes later. Jack Taylor’s cross was met by a powerful header from Jamal Campbell-Ryce which Niki Maenpaa brilliantly parried. Ricardo Santos reacted quickest but could only find the side-netting with this close-range header. The visitors had responded impressively to going behind and went even closer in the 70th minute when Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro thudded a close-range effort against the post, with Uwe Huenemeier getting an important deflection on his effort. There was a special moment in the 75th minute when 17-year-old striker Aaron Connolly became the first player born in this century to represent the senior side when he replaced Hemed. Connolly had little chance to impress in the closing stages with Albion forced to protect their lead doggedly, as Barnet pushed more men forward, but thanks to Tilley’s composed finish they will be in the 3rd Round of the cup, and will face Bournemouth away; just 4 days after playing them in the Premier League.
