Brighton & Hove Albion 1 Wigan Athletic 0
Albion have one foot and four toes in the Premier League after Glenn Murray’s 22nd goal of the season at a packed Amex.
The Seagulls started nervily and Gabriel Obertan has looked dangerous for the Latics.
Lewis Dunk had a half chance after Wigan keeper Jakob Haugaard dropped a corner.
But it was Murray, taking a knockdown from Tomer Hemed, who fired home from 20 yards.
Murray had a second effort from a corner disallowed after pushing in the area.
But so far so good. The Seagulls are on course for a return to the top flight after an absence of 34 years.
