    Time:90'
    • Brighton and Hove Albion
    • Leeds United
    • 90+4' McCormack is booked for taking off his shirt to celebrate, but there goes the final whistle! Phew! What a match and what a finish. 3-3. Thanks for joining us for this one.
    • 90+3' GOAL!! McCormack scores for Leeds. What a finish to this match. Terrific play by Howson to cut the ball back for his team-mate to slam the ball home. 3-3 now.
    • 89' Vincelot replaces the outstanding Mackail-Smith for Brighton. Going to be four minutes added to this match.
    • 89' Another booking. This time Ankergren is yellow carded for time-wasting.
    • 88' Clayton slams the ball over the bar after Ankergren had dived to block a dangerous dipping shot by Vayrynen. What a chance that was to level at 3-3.
    • 87' Mikael Forssell replaces Snodgrass for Leeds. Can Leeds force an equaliser? They are on the attack here.
    • 86' Will Hoskins takes over from Lualua for Brighton.
    • 85' Leeds have now conceded 15 goals in eight matches. That is a lot of goals.
    • 84' Leeds have not been up to it defensively in this second period. Brighton heading top of the table with a top of the table performance. Leeds have five minutes to rescue this one.
    • 83' GOAL!! Mackail-Smith slides the ball home from Barnes's pass and Brighton have the lead. 3-2 to the home side. That might be the winner.
    • 82' Over 20,000 watching this one as Ankergren beats McCormack to the ball.
    • 81' Brighton will be a point behind leaders Southampton if the score stays the same. Bromby hacks the ball clear. Get the feeling Leeds will be happier with the point.
    • 80' Mackhail-Smith just too long with the intended pass towards Lualua. Leeds with the goalkick.
    • 79' Mika Vayrynen is on for Pugh as Leeds try to claim the three points.
    • 78' O'Dea managing to get the ball back with Mackail-Smith continuing to race around the pitch. He has been a tireless worker for Brighton.
    • 77' Booking for Pugh now on his debut. Tackles flying in all over the place as Pugh goes through Mackail-Smith with two feet in the air.
    • 76' A lovely run and cross by White. Greer does well to win that header.
    • 75' Another booking for Brighton. This time Painter is the man booked for a late tackle on Snodgress.
    • 74' More impressive forward play by Mackail-Smith. Just offside there. O'Dea and Bromby have not enjoying his company this evening.
    • 73' Lualua touches the ball off Snodgrass and Brighton will have the throw-in. Brighton tending to win those all-important second balls.
    • 72' All finely poised now in this one. Both teams with seven shots at goal. Brighton just shading the possession. Wouldn't bet against a goal at either end.
    • 71' Dicker booked for a late challenge on Pugh. No complaints about that one. Five men booked now.
    • 70' Barnes plays in Mackail-Smith, but he is guilty of a pull on White. Good defending by the left-back there.
    • 69' Barnes is the latest man to be booked for a late lunge on Becchio. All a bit cynical with Leeds trying to break.
    • 68' A change coming for Leeds as Becchio replaces Keogh.
    • 67' A real change in the mood and the tone of this match from the first half. Do Leeds have anything left in their locker?
    • 66' Barnes drives into the area, but can't test the keeper from a tight angle. More evidence of Brighton being willing runners in this half.
    • 65' Lualua decides to try his luck from distance, but the shot lacks the direction as Lonergan makes an easy enough stop.
    • 64' Keogh with a free header, but he loops it over the bar from Snodgrass's delivery. Goalkick to the home side.
    • 63' Fine effort by McCormack. Great free-kick, but Ankergren gets a vital touch to nudge it past the post with plenty of bodies in the area.
    • 62' Greer pulls back McCormack on the edge of the area, and he is going to be booked. Chance then for Leeds from the free-kick.
    • 61' Mackhail-Smith is caught offside. Wasn't much in that one. Brighton suddenly flying out there. Leeds having to weather this storm.
    • 60' Leeds have lost the plot here a bit. Keogh is going to be booked for a spot of dissent. He is unhappy, but Leeds only have themselves to blame.
    • 59' GOAL!! Barnes thumps the penalty high to the right of the Lonergan. Deadly penalty and Brighton are level at 2-2.
    • 58' PENALTY TO BRIGHTON! Bromby takes out Mackail-Smith from behind. Silly, silly tackle in lunging in. He is booked for that one.
    • 57' Barnes prods a ball out of play. Poor pass. Leeds handed the ball back on a plate.
    • 56' Keogh falls awkwardly. Bromby guilty of a late push on Mackail-Smith. Calderon far too heavy with a cross seconds later. Leeds trying to take the sting out of the evening.
    • 55' Terrific effort by Mackail-Smith to keep the ball in play after a ferocious battle with O'Dea. Great energy.
    • 54' Leeds really need to discover some of the attacking flair of the first half. Seem to have nodded off since the break. Vicente trying to open his box of tricks.
    • 53' Lees back to make a fine tackle on Mackail-Smith as he prepared to pull the trigger. That looked a certain second, but somehow Leeds survie.
    • 52' Howson goes in late on Barnes. He is going to be booked for that.
    • 51' Lees with the throw-in for Leeds. A failure to lock the door behind them is proving to be problematic for the visiting men. Back on the attack now. Leeds now conceded 13 times this season.
    • 50' Leeds's wait for a clean sheet goes on. Now this game is back on. Brighton have come roaring out of the traps here.
    • 49' GOAL!! Mackail-Smith scores for Brighton!! The striker spins between Bromby and O'Dea before sliding the ball beyond Lonergan. Fine finish.
    • 48' Barnes lays the ball off to Lualua, but he tries a shot that was straight out of the Rugby World Cup. A real up and under. Leeds pinned back immediately.
    • 47' News of a change to bring you with Vicente replacing Noone for Brighton at the break.
    • 46' We are off and running at the start of the second half.
    • 45+2' There goes the half-time whistle! A 2-0 lead for the visitors. Well worthy of the lead. A long way back for Brighton in the second half.
    • 44' Two minutes to be added to the half.
    • 43' Leeds chasing a third straight league win and a first clean sheet of the season. Both look likely at the moment.
    • 42' Brighton winning a lot of corners. The latest one from Noone is disappointing as it misses the whole box and Leeds can break up the park.
    • 41' Snodgrass involved in a fierce battle with Dicker for the ball. Leeds pressing the ball as high up the park as possible. Brighton not being allowed to settle.
    • 40' Lonergan catches Noone in the box. That was a penalty, but the referee says no. Great cross by Lualua. Keeper lucky there.
    • 39' Keogh continues to chase lost causes, but Dunk watches the ball as it races behind for a goalkick to the home side.
    • 38' Leeds have bossed the majority of this one. Brighton have lacked the imagination and gusto that they showed against Liverpool.
    • 37' Calderon with a cynical late challenge on Pugh. Fortunate to avoid a booking there. Was late and was high.
    • 36' Decent delivery from the corner by Noone. Ball breaks to Mackail-Smith in the area, but he fails to lift the ball over Lonergan. Fine stop.
    • 35' Noone comes across to take another Brighton free-kick. Howson back to nod behind for a corner.
    • 34' Lualua trying to inject some life into Brighton's play. Tries a short pass in the area, but Snodgrass hammers it up the park.
    • 33' It is all very predictable at the moment with the visitors happy to let Brighton play in front of them.
    • 32' Noone dinks the corner into the box. A bit of head tennis in the box before Leeds launch it long.
    • 31' Brighton keeping the ball at the back, but not making real inroads. Lualua races into the area before O'Dea knocks it out for a corner.
    • 30' Decent piece of play by Dunk to win the ball from Keogh. He gives the ball away needlessly seconds later before Pugh chips wide from distance.
    • 29' Leeds will move up to sixth place with this victory. Brighton already looked doomed in their bid to go top with a win. Difficult to see them getting back into this one.
    • 28' Leeds with five shots on goal. Three from Brighton. Dicker hoists a free-kick into the visiting box, but Longergan is out to take the ball with some ease.
    • 27' Noone opts for the short corner, but he takes too long. Leeds really displaying a great appetite for the match. Closing down space with some relish.
    • 26' Barnes trying to get something going for Brighton, but his shot deflects wide for a corner. Noone to take.
    • 25' Mackail-Smith deemed to be offside as Leeds go for the third goal that will finish this one off. McCormack buried that shot with his left foot. Very impressive from him.
    • 24' Leeds fans in dreamland down in Brighton. Long, long way back for the home side now.
    • 23' GOAL!! McCormack thumps a stunning shot beyond Ankergren from 22 yards!! What a finish that was. Superb stuff. 10 in 13 for him, and eight for this season. Leeds 2-0 ahead.
    • 22' O'Dea not looking too impressed with the referee there. He felt that was an offside decision all the way. Leeds back on the attack.
    • 21' Lovely cross by Noone to pick out Mackail-Smith with the cross. Lovely delivery, but the Scotland striker just fails to get his head on it.
    • 20' Not sure how much energy that Liverpool match took out of Brighton on Wednesday evening. Looking a bit flat so far.
    • 19' Excellent stuff from Noone at the other end. Dashed into the box, but O'Dea comes across to make an excellent tackle. Had to time that one right.
    • 18' Some superb stuff from White to get the ball in the box with a telling cross. Leeds fans really enjoying their night. In full voice.
    • 17' GOAL!! Keogh scores for Leeds!! Keogh forces the ball home after a frantic scramble in the box.
    • 16' Clayton drills in the shot from distance. Got hold of the volley, but it deflects wide of the target. Leeds well on top. Decent stuff from Clayton.
    • 15' Greer back to make the block on Snodgrass. Leeds really starting to go to town here.
    • 14' Nice piece of play by Snodgrass. Cuts into the box, but lifts the ball narrowly over the bar with the outside of a foot. A brilliant effort there.
    • 13' O'Dea taking no chances as he nods the ball back to Lonergran in the visiting aol.
    • 12' Plenty of pretty football and passing movements, but neither side going anywhere with any real intent.
    • 11' Brighton continuing to keep the ball. Mackail-Smith takes a heavy touch as the ball spins off his foot before flying through to Lonergran.
    • 10' O'Dea throws a high ball long and into the box, but Ankergren is there to collect the free-kick with some ease.
    • 9' Leeds looking to bounce back from that 3-0 loss to Manchester United in the Carling Cup. They have certainly carried a big travelling support with them. A full house behind that goal.
    • 8' Leeds enjoying the brigher moments. Dunk seemed to push McCormack in the area, but no penalty. Was certainly a risk.
    • 7' Dunk rises to head out of the home box. Leeds looking a lot more assured on the front foot than at the back. Keogh misses the ball colliding with Dunk and that is a goalkick to the home side.
    • 6' We resume play again after that early disruption. Brighton keeping the well before Noone forces Lonergan to come to the edge of his area to collect.
    • 5' Calderon and Pugh collide in the air going for the same ball. Clash of heads and both players needing a spot of treatment.
    • 4' Noone with the corner, but Calderon's free header hits a visiting shirt before Barnes fires over. Dreadful marking it must be said by Leeds. So lucky not to be behind.
    • 3' Leeds winning an early corner from a visiting defender after a fine cross in from Bridcutt.
    • 2' Home boss Gus Poyet makes five changes to the side that lost 2-1 to Liverpool in midweek, which including a start for Kazenga LuaLua with Gary Dicker and Ashley Barnes also returning from the start. Brighton fans already in full voice.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one. Brighton in traditional blue and white, Leeds in black.
    • 19.40 Teams out on the pitch. Should be a cracking match. Another fantastic atmosphere.
    • 19.35 Leeds boss Simon Grayson: "We have to be professional in the job we do. It should be a fantastic atmopshere, but we believe we have the players to hurt them."

    • 19.20 Leeds have won 15 and lost eight of 32 league meetings with Brighton. Brighton have not won in six clashes since a 2-1 Championship victory at home in January 2006.
    • 19.15 Brighton midfielder Matt Sparrow is hoping his display against Liverpool helps thrust him back into contention for a place in the first team. "It's been very frustrating for me. All I can do is train well, work hard, and play well when I get the chance. It was good to get back out there and give the manager [Gus Poyet] some food for thought."
    • 19.10 LEEDS TEAM NEWS: Leeds will include latest recruit Danny Pugh in their squad for the trip to the Amex Stadium. The 28-year-old left-sided player has rejoined the club for a second spell from Stoke on an initial loan with a view to signing permanently in January. Manager Simon Grayson may opt to throw Pugh straight into his starting line-up - either at left-back or in midfield - while he is expected to hand striker Luciano Becchio his first start of the season.
    • 19.05 BRIGHTON TEAM NEWS: Marcos Painter returns to the Brighton squad but Will Buckley misses the visit of Leeds. Painter sat out Wednesday night's 2-1 Carling Cup defeat by Liverpool through suspension and will hope to reclaim his place at left-back even though Romain Vincelot impressed in his absence. But striker Buckley is sidelined after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring injury against the Reds. Boss Gus Poyet rested Lewis Dunk, Gary Dicker and Ryan Harley with the Leeds clash in mind.
