Match Preview

Seagulls duo miss out Brighton are still without suspended duo Matt Sparrow and Gordon Greer for the home clash with Walsall. Midfielder Sparrow completes a three-game ban and defender and skipper Greer is one game into his three-match suspension. But boss Gus Poyet has no new injury concerns ahead of the weekend. Midfielder Alan Navarro has had an operation on his ruptured cruciate ligament and now embarks on his lengthy rehabilitation. Goalkeeper Peter Brezovan is still missing with a wrist injury but he has been pencilled in for a return in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Leyton Orient next week. Young defender Lewis Dunk is the only other injury absentee as he recovers from a fractured bone in his foot. Walsall manager Chris Hutchings has a striker shortage ahead of his side's trip. Steve Jones and Darren Byfield are definite absentees, while Jonathan Macken is doubtful. Jones limped out of last week's 2-1 win over Plymouth as a scan revealed he sustained a sprained ankle and could be out of action for two to three weeks, while Byfield will miss his second match running with an Achilles problem. Jonathan Macken suffered a calf strain in a behind closed doors friendly and Hutchings will make a late decision on the forward. Those injuries mean Hutchings is likely to stick with the pairing of Reuben Reid and Alex Nicholls in attack. Reid made a dream start to his Saddlers career following his loan move from West Brom as he scored the winner against the Pilgrims.

Match Report

Saddlers unseated by Brighton Second-half goals from Ashley Barnes and Marcos Painter gave Brighton their first home win of the season as they beat 10-man Walsall 2-1 at the Withdean Stadium. Former Plymouth striker Barnes broke the deadlock on 68 minutes with a superb volley after Glenn Murray had shown good awareness to set him up inside the area. Walsall were reduced to 10 men four minutes later when striker Alex Nicholls received a straight red card following an off-the-ball incident. Defender Painter then put the Seagulls in control on 80 minutes by scoring at the far post following a cross by Elliott Bennett. Murray and substitute Jamie Smith came close to extending Brighton's advantage before substitute Jon Macken pulled a stoppage-time goal back for Walsall following a pass from Matt Richards. Walsall made the better start and striker Reuben Reid wasted two good opportunities in the space of two minutes. Reid miskicked in front of goal after the ball was squared to him by Nicholls before failing to connect when well placed at the near post.
