    SMS Message: Chrissy Hughton doing a classic Chris Hughton....he's learnt nothing since his time with Norwich in the Prem. Always gets scared of losing and goes too defensive. from Adam, Essex

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Neil Warnock milks it out on the pitch, as well he might. That is a massive, massive win and you sense that Cardiff really believe they can stay up now.

    As for Brighton - it is looking very, very bleak.

  4. FULL-TIME

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    And it's all over!

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    We're entering stoppage time, as the number of blue seats on show increases.

  9. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Still lots of effort from Brighton, but not much for Neil Etheridge to worry about.

  10. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    A few Brighton fans are already heading for the exits - this would be a fourth straight league defeat.

    Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is applauded off after an excellent night's work, replaced by Leondro Bacuna.

  13. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Vital block from Sean Morrison, who zooms in to thwart Florin Andone inside the penalty area.

  14. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    It's all Brighton at the moment, as a Neil Etheridge has to come out to punch a free kick away from under the nose of Shane Duffy.

  15. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Glenn Murray goes to go ground outside the box, looks for the free kick - but Mr Marriner just tells him to get up.

  16. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Shane Duffy pleads for a penalty as he gets sandwiched between two Cardiff shirts and then hits the deck.

    Nothing doing from Andre Marriner.

  17. CLOSE!

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    At last! Hope for Brighton for a second, as great interplay between Florin Andone and Glenn Murray allows the big Cumbrian striker an effort on goal, with a shot from the edge of the box which just skims over the top of the bar!

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Jose Izquierdo is on, replacing Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

  19. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Chris Hughton cuts an agitated figure in the technical zone as another Brighton attack ends with a poor pass, easily cut out by Bruno Manga.

  20. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff

    Brighton win a corner, but after a bit of pinball Bruno Manga nods it away.

    But the hosts get it back into the danger area and Florin Andone tries to wrap his right leg around the ball for a shot on the slide - but he cannot get any power on it and Cardiff breathe easier.
