Seagulls' title charge stalls

Brighton's League One title charge stalled at MK Dons on Saturday after their team coach broke down. The Seagulls' squad were forced to travel from their hotel to stadium:mk in a convoy of taxis after the bus would not start. They went on to suffer only their fifth defeat of the season after Daniel Powell's first-half header secured a 1-0 win for the hosts. Boss Gus Poyet said: "There are no excuses. I would love to give you an excuse but I can't. "It was not nice, but that's life." Brighton's lead at the top was cut to just one point after second-placed Bournemouth won 2-1 at Dagenham.
