  1. Goodbye

    FT: Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Tomer Hemed

    That's all from me this evening, thanks for being with us as Brighton secured a comfortable victory after a first half to forget for Leeds United.

    The Seagulls capitalised on a series of mistakes to race into a 4-0 lead and never looked back.

    You can read a match report from my colleague Phil Cartwright here.

    Remember, you can follow coverage of all the midweek fixtures in the Premier League and Championship via the BBC Sport website.

    Goodnight.

  2. Match reaction

    FT: Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton midfielder Dale Stephens tells Sky Sports: "The first half is probably the best 45 minutes we've played this year.

    "Four goals in the first half - it was job done. We can't be too greedy."

  3. FT: Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Tomer Hemed

    Brighton striker Tomer Hemed (second left) picks up the man of the match award for his two goals tonight.

    The Israel international is Albion's top scorer with 11 goals this season and has scored five goals in his last six games.

  4. Match reaction

    FT: Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton striker Tomer Hemed tells Sky Sports: "It's one of the best games for us this season. We need to work hard every week and continue to get points.

    "I missed my last penalty so I'm happy to score and win with my friends.

    "We need to play like that every game."

  5. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Referee Peter Bankes blows for full-time.

    Brighton secure their second consecutive 4-0 win, and move two points off the top of the table.

    The Seagulls have won six of their last eight games in the Championship - while Leeds have one win in 11.

    All the damage was done in the first half by the Seagulls.

  6. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton fans get momentarily frustrated as Anthony Knockaert delays mounting another attack.

    He eventually picks up a free-kick in the corner and Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor gets a yellow card.

  7. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    We'll have three minutes of added time at the end of the second half.

    Not much more for the 1,522 Leeds fans at the Amex Stadium to endure.

  8. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    The Seagulls make another trust in a search for a fifth as right-back Bruno bursts down the flank.

    His cut-back evades everyone in the box and Leeds clear the danger.

  9. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton have a chance to mount another counter-attack but it peters out as they are happy to keep possession - and secure another clean sheet.

  10. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton should have got their fifth just now.

    Jiri Skalak is played in by Bruno and is one-on-one with Marco Silvestri.

    But the Czech dithers and, as he tries to round the keeper, Sol Bamba comes back to dispossess him.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Leeds make their final change, with Luke Murphy coming on for midfielder Toumani Diagouraga.

  12. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton v Leeds

    Leeds have carved out the better openings in the second half but are not really looking too threatening.

    Still, they've kept a clean sheet so far in the second half.

  13. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton sub Jiri Skalak has just blazed a half-volley high over the bar from a narrow angle.

    It was rather ambitions by the Czech, who is still looking for his first goal since joining Albion last month.

  14. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    There has not been too much cut and thrust from the Seagulls in the second period.

    All the damage was done by the home side in the first 45 minutes.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton make their final two changes, with two-goal striker Tomer Hemed being replaced by on-loan Manchester United man James Wilson and Steve Sidwell coming on for Beram Kayal.

    Perhaps these two will liven things up.

    Brighton celebrate

    SJ McNab: If I were a Brighton fan I'd want a 1/2 refund. Might be 4-0 up at interval but they've done nothing since....

    Ah, I think the home fans will be quite content with their evening's entertainment...

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Leeds respond with a sub of their own as Lee Erwin replaces Souleymane Doukara up front.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Brighton make their first substitution of the evening, with striker Sam Baldock being replaced by Czech international Jiri Skalak.

  19. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Mustapha Carayol goes for an ambitious long-range effort which cannons off a defender and into the hands of David Stockdale.

    Leeds are having plenty of possession and efforts while Brighton have been very quiet in the second half.

    The game is lacking intensity at the moment.

  20. Brighton 4-0 Leeds

    Leeds fans

    It has been an evening to forget for Leeds fans so far, with a round trip of almost 520 miles to the south coast.

    It looks like the Whites' run in the Championship will extend to one win in 11 games.

    The Yorkshire side have never won at the Amex Stadium.
