Seagulls move out of drop zone

Brighton climbed out of the relegation zone following their goalless draw against promotion-chasing Huddersfield.The home side dominated the second half at the Withdean Stadium without getting the breaks and have yet to win a home league game under boss Gus Poyet.Midfielder Anthony Pilkington went close for the Terriers in each half and nearly snatched victory when his tremendous 40-yard free-kick cannoned back off the crossbar 11 minutes from time.Goalkeeper Alex Smithies crucially tipped over his own bar from team-mate Peter Clarke as Lee Clark's men held on.Pilkington should have hit the target 10 minutes before the break when, goalside of his marker, he put the ball over from a Danny Drinkwater free-kick.French winger Seb Carole blazed a late chance over for Brighton, who have not won at home in the league for four months.
