Brentford 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 2

New Albion boss Chris Hughton began his reign with an FA Cup third round win at Griffin Park.

The improving David Stockdale kept Albion in the tie with a number of good saves.

Glen Rea and Nzuzi Toko both featured on Albion’s bench.

Just when it seemed certain that the tie would be replayed at the Amex the week after next, Lewis Dunk stooped to head in a Solly March free-kick with just two minutes left.

Deep into injury time the much maligned Chris O’Grady put Albion 2-0 in front and the result beyond doubt.

Albion go into the hat for the fourth round of the cup for the fifth year in succession.
