Match Preview

Seagulls to check on Sparrow Matt Sparrow needs a fitness test ahead of Brighton's clash with Hartlepool. The midfielder was a late withdrawal from last week's win at Bristol Rovers after tweaking a knee ligament in training. Striker Glenn Murray twisted his ankle on Tuesday but resumed training on Thursday and has been passed fit. Boss Gus Poyet picked Murray alongside Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes in a bold three-man attack in Bristol and could be tempted to do so again after their 4-2 win. Veteran midfielder Radostin Kishishev could miss out again with a back problem and Alan Navarro (cruciate), Jamie Smith (foot) and Jim McNulty (ankle) remain long-term absentees. Hartlepool first-team coach Mick Wadsworth will again be without defender Neil Austin. The right-back is still struggling with the calf injury he sustained in the 4-0 defeat at Oldham on February 1 which forced him out of the hard-fought 1-0 win over Colchester last weekend. Pools have no fresh injury or suspension problems to contend with but Wadsworth has options available if he decides to change his starting line-up. Winger Andy Monkhouse and striker Colin Larkin impressed after coming on as substitutes against the Us and the pair will be hoping to play more prominent roles against the Seagulls. Loan striker Ryan Donaldson will also be hoping for a recall after scoring for the reserves against Grimsby in midweek.

Match Report

Murray on fire as Seagulls soar Glenn Murray scored twice to take his season's tally to 14 as leaders Brighton eased to their fourth successive home league win. Hartlepool, who have never won at Brighton, were 2-0 down after 17 minutes and have now conceded four goals in each of their last three away games. Chris Wood, on loan from West Brom, gave Brighton the lead after only 12 minutes by shooting through a crowd of players after Gary Dicker had played the ball into the box from a short corner. Murray doubled the Seagulls advantage with a tap-in five minutes later following intelligent play from Ashley Barnes. Murray was unlucky when his shot deflected off the post and the Brighton striker later headed wide following a fine ball to the far post by Elliott Bennett. Substitute Craig Noone struck Brighton's third eight minutes after the interval from close range, and Murray added his second in the 57th minute with a clinical finish in a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Scott Flinders. The Seagulls were caught ball-watching when Pools midfielder Antony Sweeney grabbed a consolation for the visitors in the 63rd minute on the edge of the six-yard box.
