    As if to confound the myth that ex-players are always barracked on their return to former clubs, there's a warm smattering of applause from the home fans in the Main Stand as Glenn Murray, who spent the 2015-16 season at Bournemouth, comes on for the visitors.

    Some of the Brighton fans will have missed his entrance, having taken that second goal as their cue to head for the exits. Maybe they know how long the car park here takes to clear...

    Game over.

    It's another lovely goal for Brooks, who gets on the end of Ryan Fraser's cross and sends a looping header over Mat Ryan and into the net.

    No way back for Brighton now, surely?

    Lewis Dunk knew exactly what was coming after that foul. He walked off the field without a word, and stalked off straight down the tunnel.

    Before the red card, Brighton were preparing to bring striker Glenn Murray on - but now they're readying Gaeten Bong to reinforce their depleted back line.

  14. RED CARD

    The Brighton defender picks up a second caution for a tackle from behind on Callum Wilson.
