League One leaders Brighton showed their promotion credentials with an emphatic 4-0 demolition of Charlton at The Valley.Inigo Calderon opened the scoring in the first half and second-half strikes from Glenn Murray, Kazenga LuaLua and Matt Sparrow consigned the Addicks to a heavy defeat.Brighton took the lead in the 26th minute after Charlton failed to clear from a corner, allowing Bennett to find Gary Dicker on the left of the area and his low cross was smashed home at the back post by Calderon.The visitors added a second after 62 minutes when Murray capitalised on Johnnie Jackson's poor attempted backpass before firing past Elliot.Substitute LuaLua's stunning 20-yard shot from a quickly taken short free-kick made it 3-0 nine minutes from time.And LuaLua turned provider in stoppage time when his cross was headed home by Sparrow as the leaders cemented their place at the top of the table.
